in the garden...

The Gladiator allium that I ordered last year from Breck's are up.
The pansies are doing well with the cooler rainy weather we've been having lately...

The irises are blooming ahead of the poppies this year ~ usually they do so together, but the poppies are late this year...
A white bleeding heart surrounded by some hostas... And, the chicks arrived yesterday from Murray McMurray Hatchery...
...araucanas, silver laced wyandottes, partridge & buff rocks, and jumbo cornish x rocks.
New chicks in the spring always make me happy!

  6. Your garden is sure coming along beautifully. I am still waiting for the first blooms of delphinium. Our hosta's are finally poking their heads out and I can hardly wait for them to get bigger.

    God bless.

  8. All the flowers are lovely as well as the chix. Our chix just started feathering out so are just plain homely right now:-) But I look forward to them getting their feathers and strutting their stuff around the yard soon.

    I wanted to let you know that I made one of your recipes yesterday from your October 22,2007 post....pear & cream cheese tart. It was so very delicious. My family loved it and it now has a permanent place in my recipe box under my "best blogger recipes" section. Thank you!

    Enjoy!
