I took the dogs for a walk the other day. It was gray out and nothing really spectacular about the day to speak of. But we enjoyed the walk and the somewhat warmer temperatures.

It has put me in the mood for flowers, which of course is ridiculous considering the temps will plunge down into the 30's and snow is in the forecast.
But where there is a will, there is a way...and a sale!

...but still beautiful. So time to take the pups to the lake and wear their butts out.
We saw early, and I mean really early, wild leeks, geese and seagalls flying overhead, a lone duck gliding across the lake and heard the birds singing their evening songs.
It looks chilly but it wasn't as the temps were in the 50's. A glorious day to take advantage of this long warm break and spend some time there.

Yes! Thank you for asking! I am still doing that chicken "thaanng"!
Currently the flock is between 20 or thirty something and if they stood still long enough I might get half of them counted...or not. They all reside happily together at One Cackle Way.
One thing I know for sure is that I have about 4 roosters too many and the rest are hens. Oh and the other thing I know is that those boys have to "go" before spring. One way or another.
I have never been a cost effective flock keeper. I run more of a retirement home and shelter than anything. Culling is very difficult especially when I have had these boys since they broke out of the egg. And they are gorgeous!
I love the way the sun brings out the iridescent colors of their feathers. Two are jet black with green, one is black and white barred with green and the last has orange, red, black and green.
They are all tremendously friendly, will free range, follow me around the yard and come when called.
If you know anyone who might be looking for a big handsome fellow or two, please give them my info or leave a comment below. Oh yes and that ^^^^ is referring to the chickens only!

Last night was the night of the "Snow" moon. We lucked out as the clouds parted and the snow stopped to allow the full moon to glow down on the blanket of fresh snow. It was beautiful!
Interestingly, many of the women of my family were up and admiring it in various parts of the country at exactly the same time. PA, GA, MI, AZ are states in which some of us currently call home.
Given the lore of the moons pull, babies being born, crazies coming out, etc. makes you wonder if there isn't something to it. Not to worry though. No werewolves or bigfoots were spotted!
