I've Been a Bore

Everything has been pretty routine around here lately.  One can only write so much about growing a garden and milking goats before it gets old.

This is one of the irise that I planted last fall.  I can't remember what it's called, but it's a unique color - not quite yellow, not quite tan, not quite rust.  Very pretty.

And this is a bit of wild flowers growing amongst the farm implements.

This corner of the yard is coming along nicely.  The hydrangeas should be blooming soon.

A momma Cardinal was enjoying her bath.

We still have two Boers that are expecting.  I thought they were due at the beginning April and they both look they are going to pop.

This is what chickens can do to an area.  We have two large lights on telephone poles that attract bugs at night.  The chickens have discovered this and spend a good part of the day scratching around under these poles.  This one is near the house and well house.

Same area, on the inside of the fence.  This whole area used to be covered with grass.  Now it is a desert wasteland and is one of the reasons why I wanted to fence the back yard.  I'm hoping that when I get the gates up, the chickens will stay on the outside of this fence and leave the yard alone.

The other light pole is next to the mower shed.  The soil used to be mounded up over the edge of this tin siding and thickly covered with grass.  The chickens have completely scratched it away and we're wondering if the they are going to completely burrow away the foundation of this shed and the mowers are going to fall out the bottom.
