    [​IMG] I just had to share this.........of course you all probably know that here in Oklahoma ,well, we are on our 20th day of rain........my yard is like a lake [​IMG]

    ..........NOWHERE is dry.and the hens that normally lay eggs in my monkey grass decided they didn't want to do the "water birth"thing [​IMG]
    so I find them running around screaming at egg laying time.......desparately looking for a new place......well.....low and behold....I found my white rock sitting in an empty flower pot right next to my door.............. [​IMG]
    too cute........ can't believe she did it in there...........

    at least she found some privacy!
    I don't know why but my hens last year started laying their eggs right on my front porch! I kinda liked it so that I didn't have to go out and collect the eggs. The poo on the porch I didn't like so much.

    and oh ya maybe you send some of that rain out here to GA. We could use it!

    Yeah the drought sinks because everything is dead, the bees aren't making honey, the peaches and blueberries are doing terribly, and there are wild fires. But too much rain stinks too because the damage it does and the mild and the biggie the kids can't go out and play!! I hope it lets up soon.

    Smart girl getting out of the rain that way. I actually saw sun shine yesterday. It is like a boost to your attitude. Someone asks you why are you smiling.[​IMG] and I say the sun is shinning. Looks like our nice rain has moved into SE Kansas. Those poor people it looked terrible this morning on the news. I got lots of apples but peaches all rotted on tree. My cukes are doing good too for now. What a crazy mess. Did you see the 7-day. A chance of rain everyday.
