Blooming lilies

The chickens have decided the grasshoppers are fatter on the other side of the Fence so they started flying for freedom each day.

Our dogs rarely take notice of the chickens so they are safe inside the fence, but outside is a different story. Most of the chickens we've had in the past that met tragic ends were outside the fence. Stray neighborhood dogs ran into the yard, had a chicken dinner and headed out with feather stuck to their mouths.

To keep them inside the fence, I'll have to clip their wings so they can't fly. It's a pain because they squawk as if I'm lopping off their heads, but clipping their wings is painless.

This evening as I herded them toward the back gate, I noticed color out of the corner of my eye at the edge of the woods. After getting the chickens to safety, I stepped back over to investigate. It was the lilies that Jilda planted years ago. I feared the drought last year did them in, but there they were.

Stepping over, I snapped a few pictures for the blog.

Not much else to report from Empireville. Have a great Wednesday.
