Oh What a Beautiful Morning!

It's in the 60s this morning in South Alabama and I'm loving it!  Everything is so green and pretty and it is not too hot to go out and get some work done in the yard.  I've been doing some here and there, but I've really been slacking.  The morning sun comes right up over my backyard beds and after a few minutes of working or weeding, you can hardly stand it, but this morning, I spent about an hour and a half weeding one of my beds and planting some seeds. 

I had a little helper this morning.


We still have just the one and she is spoiled rotten.  She doesn't get let out of her pen a lot because I'm so worried the neighborhood dogs are going to get at her like they did all my others.

I was weeding one of my beds and she was right up in it with me.  I literally had to keep a big stick by my side because she thinks our fingers and toes are worms and goes crazy sometimes.  I don't hit her with it, I just use it to gently push her away. 

It didn't really deter her though.  She wanted to know everything that was going on.

We had another  little helper too.  This little stick bug hanging out on the wall while we were working.

As I was going inside, I realized I had several peas growing on my pea plant.  I am so excited.  I pray they keep at it so we can have some fresh peas.  Yum!

Everyone have a great week!

  1. We thoroughly enjoyed a cooldown here in central Ohio as well! Keeping my fingers crossed for your peas!

  2. Hope some of that cooler weather makes its way down here. You can cut the air with a knife today!
    Don't you just love when you can hang outside for a while and actually accomplish something? ;0)

  3. It is getting cooler here too. I can actually go outdoors and enjoy being out there. Love your chicken!

  4. Oh, yes, it is getting cooler here too, and I love it! I need to start weeding the strawberries now. I hope you get a lot of peas. They are so good from the garden. I think my kids ate all of ours raw this year! Your chicken is beautiful! Glad she didn't eat the stick bug, lol.

    Have a great evening with your family.
