    Hi everyone,

    Thought I would share a few pics with yall.Life has been busy for me,gardening,chickens & trying to keep up with cutting the grass.
    We have had monsoon rains, everything is growing like crazy. It has been cool last couple of days & I've been loving it.

    This is the middle of our garden area, notice the oak tree that fell in the background.I was letting the chickens out one morning & watched it fall.It didn't damage anything,we just look at it as free firewood ,lol.

    One of the biggest cypress trees around, do you see the wood ducks?

    One of my bantams, I call her Cow,lol. She hatched some Marans from BYC member Ruth (Monique) [​IMG]


    A couple of little miracles from our little piece of paradise.
    This pair of geese have been living out on the bayou for I know 8 years or more.Never been successful in hatching any babies.. till now.



    Why hasn't anyone told me how cute goslings are??? [​IMG]
    I go out & feed the ducks/turtles/catfish every morning in my canoe, such a surprise to see them show up with some babies.Way,way too cute.

    Hi Miriam - great shots as always. I love the nature scenes that make up your "backyard". It was such a pleasure meeting you and your DH and I look forward to seeing you again sometime. Those little BC Marans chicks are HUGE? What are they eating? And those little goslings - oh so cute. I'm so happy for the parents who finally have little babies after all these years. I pray they live and do well - life on the bayou can be tough - probably why it took them 8 years to get babies.
