time for Happy Hour! This is our happy hour, in the garden towards the end of another scorching heat filled day, or on the porch.
Supper bowls treats ready for the ladies.....yes, I spoil them. LOL They love kale, CORN, bits of most any meat especially ham or hamburger, (and TUNA!) scrambled eggs, rice. We don't waste anything here. And on these sweltering hot summer days....they enjoy ice cold watermelon bits. I love chopping and preparing their bowls, I find it very relaxing.
(above)....that's my newest "baby", Rose. I think she's right at 16 weeks old now. She grew much faster than the hens in our first flock. Sadly, we lost her sister, Blanche last week.

SO STYLISH!! ha ha One of my typical "garden get-ups". LOL!! ha ha. Always tucking pants or pedal-pushers into big long black or white socks, trying to ward off the "skeeters". I often wear big black boots over those, but this day I was in my dirty old garden/chicken coop clogs.
"No-see-ums rivaled the mosquito for the position of State Bird. They were all but invisible ferocious little bugs that would DEVOUR you like piranhas. Well, almost. My Daddy used to call them "flying jaws".
