    Looks so clean and airy! Everything here has dried to dust. All my poor flowers are burnt to a crisp. Petunias and marigolds. The petunias will come back, but will the marigolds? Are they annuals?

    they are both annuals . with that being said, My petunia came back from last winter on the back porch in a pot. marigold from the seed and you probably have time for them to come and bloom this summer. Prostar, your ladies are looking very nice.

    Rough day today. Poor Tom is very sick with a bowel problem. VERY SICK. He has been a mess a few times today. The joys of living with someone that has use of one hand is too much sometimes. [​IMG] Drs. visit today showed just how bad he is when put on the spot. He couldnt answer the simplest of questions. He just kept looking at me to answer. very sad. He is breaking my heart. One yr. later and i finally get the results to my stress test. they had put it in the wrong place in my electronic chart. . Remember this was for heart clearance for my foot surgery. well, It shows I had just had another heart attack and my heart is beating way too slow. Gotta love these drs. around here.

    Sorry about the Health problems granny, it makes me thankful for the NHS.

    Sorry but I'm hijacking the thread lol, I have serious chicken math problems. Help me decide please! I'm looking for sweet hens that will fit in with my existing flock.
    Despite not being able to buy birds due to the Avian Flu ban in my area, which will hopefully be lifted soon. I want to think about what birds I'm going to get in my flock.

    If you have any opinions or experiences or any of the following breeds, they would be appreciated :
    (Buff, Blue, Silver, Gold or Barred) Wyandotte
    Buff Laced Frizzle, Gold Laced or Tolbunt Polish
    Chocolate or Black Orpington
    Salmon Faverolles
    Welsummers
    Cream Legbar
    Gold or Double Silver Laced Barnevelder
    Wheaten Marans
    Silkie (a variety of colours - White, Black, Gold and a few other I can't remember)
    Welbar
    Brahma (Dark, Gold, Lemon Pyle)
    And a variety of hybrid hens - Rhode Star, Amber Star, Black Rhode, Bluebelle, Calder Ranger, Daisybelle, Speckled Star, Sussex Star, White Star, Buff Barred and Partridge

    I have to narrow this list down to five!
