Happy Earth Day!

Happy Earth Day, everyone.  For this month's edition of our blog circle, Earth Day is our theme.  I took the opportunity to walk around my mini-farm and check out what's going on. I'm a little sad writing this post because yesterday we lost one of my favorite chickens.  Most of the chickens are all the same, but right from birth there was one buff orphinton that was special.  I called her my buddy.  She escaped from our porch when she was just 7 days old and survived a night out alone.  I found her chirping at the door in the morning to come in.  Everytime I would feed the chicks they would all run away, but buddy would come up and peck my feet.  Well yesterday she got hit by a car - the worst predator of all for us.

Sorry to be a downer, there is so much new life going on right now I am trying to focus on that.

Be sure to check out Jen's take of this theme next at Sunflower Studios.
