A fall Surprise
I was walking around the garden yesterday pulling weeds and noticing how many of the flowers are looking ready to sleep for the winter and ran into this….
A Glad….What a Glad I ask myself, I didn’t plant any of these this year, or last year for that matter. It must be left over from the year before because I did plant yellow Glads in that area. Wonder why it didn’t bloom last year? But I sure am happy it decided to bloom even if it is late in the season.
Isn’t it cheery!
Well the chickens and Guinea are in their run even though it’s not finished. We still need to build a door and put up some sort of fencing to cover the top of the run. Then put up the plywood in the inside to cover the insulation and finally hang the pails I am going to use for nesting boxes.
A little each weekend and we will make it before winter sets in.
I have been hearing from many neighbors lately that the Guinea foul and chickens won’t get along and the Guinea will peck the chickens badly. They have been out of their temp. cage and in with the chickens for 3 days now and everyone seems to be getting along just fine, once the pecking orders were established the first few hours.
Some of the flowers like the roses are starting to bloom again despite their sad-looking leaves this time of year. They are enjoying the cool nights and warm sunny days this fall has given us so far.
