broke into their home this weekend.
He fought with all his might.
He lost his fight yesterday...
I know it is the circle of life but I am writing with tears in my eyes at his loss and the loss of the two little black and white Bantams.
I can't believe I am crying over chickens but those who know me know these weren't just chickens, they are my pets.
Who come to me when I called them.
Who would follow me for treats.
Who would eat out of my hand.
We've moved the remaining four hens to a safe home, a home of a dear friend who was willing to take on four more mouths to feed and care for all in the name of friendship.
Rest In Peace Sir Charles... I will really miss you

Meet the king of the roost! What a stately rooster he is.
Not to mention he is very proud of himself!
He certainly guards his girls too. When Hubs went into the pen the other day Sir Charles
showed his spurs to keep Hubs in check. He is one tough rooster going against Hubs!
I am loving being a chicken mom ... although some people think I am quite nuts!

Here's what blooming in the garden! It seems to be a purple week!
Clematis planted in memory of Hubs' dad -His favorite.
Columbine so dainty but so hardy...
And lilac - one of my very favorites. This was one of the best birthday presents I've ever received...
It means so much to me and I planted it where I can enjoy it every single day.

Since there's not much growing around here I thought I'd share a few things that get lost in the
greenery of summer...
These stone cats sit in my shade garden and often are disguised by the hostas that fill in behind them. The garden is just starting to fill out and this spot has changed quite a bit since it was taken.
This curly - kinky branched tree often gets overlooked once someone sees the other gardens.
It a Contorted Filbert, also known as Harry Lauder Walking Stick. Its one of my favorites.
