Kings and Ladybugs

 Every few years I have to replenish my collar and leash supplies.  These collars are from Canadian company Hot Dogs All Dressed.  I bought a couple of leather collars (will get a photo of Beamish in his green shamrock collar soon) but my favourites are these Hydro collars, fun and quirky and they should last forever.  The customer service is amazing, I ordered these two collars for Hope & Cutter on Monday and they arrived Thursday.

I bet you didn't know that chickens have eye lashes...OK maybe you did, but, I didn't until I owned a flock.
What else I didn't know about chickens before I added them to my life, the girls occasionally get a little broody, and when they do they are not very happy to have you stealing their eggs.
Of course, because we don't have a rooster our eggs our infertile, no matter how long Ms.Broody Britches sits on those eggs they are not going to hatch.
Meet little Carrot Top, one of our rabbit babies born Easter weekend.  I have been wanting to keep a little ginger bunny and since this one has been handled lots we have named it Carrot Top and will add to our breeding stock....just need to figure out if it's a he, or, a she.

Mother Nature you stink

April, what a horrible b*tch you have been, what should have been April showers was snow on Thursday followed by an ice storm.  I thought we made it through the overnight mess, but, around 9am Friday a big old Maple that shades our dog run came crashing down taking out all the fencing and creating an extra HUGE mess.  Spring 2013 the sooner I can forget about you the better.

I close my eyes and I believe

That soon, only a few weeks from now, the days will be like this, no snow, no ice, rain either.  Dear, dear Spring from Hell, one day you will be a bad memory!

April indoors


We may not be enjoying the best Spring, but, indoors we are doing our best to continue with all things Spring-ish

Seeds were ordered back in January, the planting started last month

Who can resist the promise of seedlings

Once Hexe's pups moved from the spare room to downstairs we were quick to get everything in place to start our summer garden.  In just a few short weeks these delicate seedlings will be making the trek out to the garden.

Another cold 'Spring' morning

I am surprised you can't see Hexe's breath in this photo cause it was another freaking cold morning!!
This time last year we had green grass, seriously check it out 
Currently there is still snow in places around the property.  I stupidly changed from the heated chicken waterer to the non-heated and every day this week I have had to thaw it inside.  This is one of the first years of my life that I have wished I could escape to someplace warm.  Yeah yeah, come July I am sure I will be complaining about the oppressive heat :-)
