Mr. Nice Guy

There are people and places I want to tell you about, which I hope to do soon.  In the meantime, I wanted to introduce you to our new rooster.  He was in need of a new home, and came to live with us a few weeks ago.  He is a sweetheart, and doesn't appear to be at all aggressive.  He's a handsome thing, and the girls and he are getting along famously.

There was a family gathering here, weekend before last.  Three birthdays were celebrated, along with an uncle visiting from out of state.  It's always a tight squeeze to get everyone in here, and was a rainy day to boot, but it was a lovely day nonetheless.

Exactly a year ago, I told you about a bird landing in my hair.  That was a first.  It's happened twice already this spring.  My hair has always had a mind of it's own. I pretty much keep it pulled back into a ponytail, here on the homestead, but I guess there's no hiding prime nesting material :o)  Though those peonies above are up, don't let them fool you. I was an hour and a half north of here today, close to the Virginia border, and drove through an hour of hail, snow and sleet coming home.

Can't wait for the peonies as its flowers come in every color except blue.

I think I would have a heart attack if a bird landed in my hair! I have a weird phobia when birds fly near me, I made a fool of myself in Trafalgar Square amidst the pigeons taking off.

our peonies are up quite a ways too, along with two asparagus peeking through:)

Hooray for being in the snow free zone! We are too this late spring :)

Handsome rooster .. I bet ALL the ladies like him.

How funny about the birds in your hair .. it would freak me out a bit.

Have a blessed weekend.

The birds really aren't scary. They hover near my head, and only touch down on my ponytail for a moment or two before they're off again. I don't think they've actually taken any hair... just checking it out. Heading out to cut the first asparagus, Jennie. I'm thinking omelets.
