Pictures From Lloyd, May 3, 2011

Gourd plant from a seed that Bethany sent me. Yay! Thanks, Bethany!

Overly ambitious bean plants.

Shalayla on nest in garage. That patch of baldness on her back? The badge of being overly-loved by a rooster. We always hurt the ones we love.

Daffodil, Mabel and Miss Dolly eating from a melon bowl. (Thanks, Ms. Fleur!)

Virgin of Guadalupe tablecloth, drying on the line. (Thanks Liz Sparks!)

Goodness. I just realized how nice people are to me. Okay. I realize that all the time.


  1. Daily image of ones lives...I can smell the linen on the line with a sweet breeze blowing it dry...

    I like how the hens are taking turns with the melon..so good for them!

  2. I am glad to see the photos. Nice to be loved.

  3. Crap, I love it over here. Sigh...

  4. I love the tablecloth. It is tres cool.

  5. I thought that the top photo was a Luna moth resting. LOVE

  6. What a beautiful tablecloth! Miss Dolly is a lovely gold colour. I can tell your chickens apart now!

    The gourd seed looks like a butterfly xx

  7. I don't even know why you keep that rooster around, if all he's good for is screwing your chickens and they lay eggs whether they've been screwed or not...

  8. Ellen- they pecked that sucker to the rind.

    Syd- I know! And you are.

    Nicol- Wish you could visit for real.

    Ms. Bastard-Beloved- When you come we'll use it. I promise.

    x-ray Iris- Isn't it pretty?

    Christina- That's so funny! You're a peach.

    Lucy- You are so wrong about Elvis. He does a lot. He protects those girls and watches out for hawks and other predators. He finds food for them and feeds them. Plus- he is beautiful and gentle to humans and we love him. Why would we kill him?

  9. Aw, gourd seedling, one of my favorite sights. Thank you!!!
    Love your pics.
    I miss you lately.
    I can't keep up with myself.
    But how wonderful to come here tonight and scroll down and see my name and the gourd blooming!
    Made my night.

  10. Bethany- I spent last evening working on a silly thing for you. One of these days...
    you will get mail.
    I love my gourds and cukes.


Tell me, sweeties. Tell me what you think.
