Welcome, welcome! It rained enough last night that all things are pacified, even if not completely satisfied, and that's good enough for me. The earth is humming along, the crickets are tuning up, the birds are singing, twittering, calling, burbling, doing all that which birds do vocally and it's so quiet I can hear the flutter of wings when they take off from a nearby branch.

I am almost afraid to go out to the garden, knowing that it is full of ripe vegetables which should be dealt with. No matter how well you water, there is nothing like a good rain to bring things along. Weeds included.

It is going to be a good day. Owen is coming over and we shall have adventures, I am sure. We shall let the chickens out today since we're going to be here although I am not sure at all what I think I can do about hawks. Yell a warning? But somehow, if I am here, I feel safer about letting them roam. I am considering the possibility of getting some guinea hens. My neighbors used to have some and I loved the way they walked in a line, uttering their rusty calls. They got picked off, one by one though, as they traveled and now there are none.
Did you know that guinea hens can keep a yard free of ticks and fleas?
They can.

Well, Owen is here and ready to rock and roll and so it is.

He and his mama are already out with the chickens and so I must go too.

It's a good day in Lloyd.

Be well. Love....Ms. Moon


  1. Have a good one. I know what you mean about the garden. Ours is in full production mode.

  2. Sounds like the beginning of a VERY good day in Lloyd.

    En joy!!

  3. Oooh, get them!! I love guinea fowl; they're so old world and gracious. By the way, I wish you'd do one of those blog tour of homes posts...I'm dying to see your home in its entirety via a nice succession of photos over which I will oooh and ahhhh. xoxo

  4. Syd- It's Garden Medley for supper again tonight.

    Akannie- It was!

    silverfinofhope- Okay. I'll do that soon.

    adrienne- And to you, precious!

    Ms. Bastard-Beloved- He's a hoot.

    Nicol- Back at ya.

  5. Well maybe I should get some guinea hens then. Not that I've ever seen any ticks or fleas in our garden, but I do hate them.

  6. I don't much about Guinea hens...but I sure dislike ticks and we have plenty around here with all the deer.

  7. Oh yes get some Guinea hens! I can enjoy them here.

    Lovely picture of the three of you xx


Tell me, sweeties. Tell me what you think.
