The big yella bush in front of my house has been blooming since Monday.
Every day it looks better and better.
A few birds are building nests in it.
Everyone in town is calling this unusual weather the "Vermont Summer."
It was so hot today I drove my side kick Mavis to get an ice cream cone at the ice cream stand that opened 6 weeks early because of pressure from townsfolks who have been demanding fresh ice cream since last week.
After enjoying a tower sized ice cream cone we drove over to water the herd in their new field.
I found them in various locations sunning themselves, napping in the shade and trying to rub their thick coats off on the big maple trees.
I came home and planted some lettuce and more sunflowers. I am frothing at the bit to rototill the garden and start planting the entire thing. I am using alot of self control!
There are birds everywhere building nests and collecting materials from the fields.
All the grain stores are taking orders for chicks.
I looked at the lists today while picking up several blocks of mineral salt for the cows.
There were 4 breeds I would like to get, but I already have 4 fast growing chicks flying around my bathroom.....
Have you picked up your chicks yet? What kind did you get?
