I thought I would share some pictures from around my house today. Maybe it will help you think warm thoughts! One of my Delawares having a snack: A young Ancona enjoying some free-ranging time: My young pullets and my old-molting RIR hanging out in the run: The lifecycle of the Gulf Fritillary. We have passion flower vines all over and always have the whole life cycle of this particular butterfly at any given time. I watched a butterfly lay this egg: Which will turn into a caterpillar like this one: It will make a chrysalis like this: From which will hatch a butterfly like this: My beehive was buzzing with activity: Finally, some pictures of the young plants in my back garden. Broccoli: Brussels Sprouts: Onion: Garlic: There now, didn't that warm your day? I am jealous of the snow that you all have (well, maybe not all the snow), so I thought I would spread the feeling .
