No loitering at the beach

Miss Molly enjoying a Sunday afternoon hike. We climbed a lot higher than either of us expected. Probably because it cooled off when the clouds rolled in. Ah....

A new penthouse for the Pallet Palace. The chickies didn't even wait until I was finished to check it out. If they had thumbs, I think it would be 2 thumbs up.

We had a surprise on the plaza Friday night, finding an amazing display of classic cars. But, as much as I love the old Chevys, that Range Rover was to die for!

The chicks have been identified as Speckled Sussex (love saying that name). Their adult feathers are coming in, so we can now kind of see what they'll look like. The new feathers sure look itchy, though.

We're a bit behind the rest of the country, as the high desert has freeze warnings until late-May. But, we're up and running now with flowers and veg outside. I'm focusing on tomatoes and green chiles this year, but we'll see what other surprises may show up. We're already seeing sunflowers that came up from seeds scattered last year. And, the Snapdragons seem to like coming back each year.

Pallet Palace

It is mostly complete, but I still need to add a roost section over the right-hand side. It will let them jump up at night into a nice, private section where they can get a good night's sleep. They're still climbing into the cardboard box on the ground at night., though. Another few days and they'll get the urge to get off the ground at night.

Mountain flowers

I'm not quite sure what it is, but it sure was beautiful. It added a nice bit of color to our hike with Molly's father yesterday.

The dirt did not last long before it was thrown all around. But, the chicks did seem to enjoy their dust bath.

My chicken TV dinner needs a few more minutes

The beebies love their dust baths, so I'm putting a tray of dirt/sand in for them to play in. They just can't take turns, so 2 out of 3 are in at the same time. There's a lot of kicking. Oh, and dirt everywhere.
