For all those waiting, here is the update on my chicks. Sadly, I lost another one, the one that was the weakest from the beginning and it did not surprise me to have her succumb. Fortunately, I was not at home and my hubby got the privilege of giving her a decent burial.
On the upswing, the remaining 4 are hale and hearty. Their wings are already displaying how pretty they will be.
Can you see the striations of color? Three chicks are noticeably larger than one and I am hoping that does not mean the larger are roosters. I would like one rooster or maybe even two but not three, that would leave me only one hen. Not that I couldn’t get another clutch of eggs to hatch if I needed to.
I mentioned a sign design I had racketing around in my brain. I finally got it to a point I could share and I am thrilled with how it is turning out. Better than I had imagined, in fact.
I love the gothic lettering. The curves on the wood softens the overall effect and the tiny rosebuds painted on a just a couple letters gives it the Pam touch.
Here it is displayed on my potting bench.
Since I have been suffering from Spring withdrawals I bought myself some Spring! I call it “Spring in a 6pack”. I fell in love with this combo of colors.
I think the tag called it Pumpkin Spice.
I need to pot them up into either a planter or individual larger pots. I will see what I have in the greenhouse to do the job.
They smelled so lovely as they sat beside me on the drive home from the nursery/feed store. They made the sun shine (in my heart) even while it poured rain!
Now, back to the studio for me. I just thought I would pop in here and share a bit of Spring and a chickie update.
