Rain Glorious Rain

Houseplants in their summer quarters
We had the first good rain in a couple of months last night.  The houseplants and other living things are all breathing a sigh of relief.  The rainwater cistern is full, and the pond level has risen.  We finally got all the pieces hooked up last week, and began using the pond for irrigation.

The Buff Orpington chicks are 8 weeks old now.  This week, we began letting them out into the larger yard.  The rest of the flock and they can check each other out for a bit, and in a couple more weeks or so, we'll likely integrate them.  Whatever you do this weekend, I hope you enjoy your days!
