BooHoo Henny Penny!

I am not happy right now. A few days ago I noticed that my chickens had run scared back into their house. Hmmm, what's going on? On closer inspection there were a couple of hens hiding in the blackberry patch. There I also found one of my hens...dead!!! What killed my little red hen? The fence is good all around the pen so I knew nothing got in there. Plus, there would probably been a chicken massacre if dogs or coyotes had gotten in.
Then yesterday I had left the house and when I pulled up in the yard I noticed the chickens were not out pecking and scratching around. Looking closer I noticed a HUGE hawk in my chicken yard! I grabbed a stick (cause that's what you do, I guess) and slowly walked towards it. I got pretty close to it but it flew over the fence and then away! Two hens were hiding in the blackberry patch and there I found another dead hen!

Oh, I love this!

Excuse me while I go get something to wipe up drool!
Thinking how beautiful this would be as a shower curtain .

Look at the gorgeous chippy paint. I am in love!
I want this!
I am loving this.

I know she must be saying "Oh, my"!
Old button cards
I need these rooster statues really bad
Only thing missing is a pie
I know this is Christmassy but look how gorgeous that fireplace is.
Biting my nails and wimpering now!

My Grandpa LB and Grandma Perl
Her name was Danni Perl

After reading post this morning it got me to reminiscing of my Pollard family.
This week we lost another aunt. Aunt Christine was married to my mother's brother Otis. My mother's name is Margaret Geneva. She was a Pollard Okie from Eufaula/Onapa area. The Pollard's were a big family of 14-1 children to L B and Perl. There are only 4 surviving girls now. The rest are in the Checotah cemetery.

May you rest now in sweet peace

No, this is not the Joad Family of the Grapes of Wrath
It's some of Pollards

Hyacinth Bulbs and Incubator Eggs

I bought these hyacinths two years ago. They were in bloom then they died . They sat on my front porch all last summer. I brought them in wondering if they were still good. They were. Look whats happening!
18 Rhode Island Red eggs in the incubator. 20 days to go!

Valentine Roses

I put my order in early this Valentine's Day. As you all know I love roses. My husband usually buys me roses so this year I requested a Pink Double Knock-out rose bush.
He bought me two! Yay!
I planted one last year in front of our propane tank (to hide it). Yesterday we planted the two new ones on each side of last years bush.
Anyway, I think they are going to do great. I will post pictures this summer. :)
I bought him two blueberry plants. Now we have four!
I bought him two new raspberry plants. Now we have four!
And I bought him one concord grape vine. Now we have 3 grape vines!
Now c'mon, Mr. Sun! Shine down on us!

Looking forward to snow-less days this week!

Freedom Gardens

I have been a member of Freedom Gardens for about 3 years. My profile name there is Squashbug. Go ahead and laugh. It just came to me and that's what I typed in. So now you know me as Katydid and Squashbug. LOL! Anyway, I was asked by Anais Dervaes if I would like to be one of the featured freedom gardeners of the month! It's kind of a big deal!
