A quickie

The chickens have been registering their displeasure at not being featured on the blog as often as they used to be...


"Put my photo up, or I peck your eyes out!"

And this is from a couple of weeks ago. Every year, the Williamstown Fair has a scarecrow contest in the days leading up to the fair. You see funny scarecrow dioramas everywhere. I just loved this one on our road:



Scarecrow in hammock with case of Budweiser (how un-Canadian!), with fake crows everywhere!

I managed to get stung on my middle finger today, not at the hives but in my own kitchen! I brought in some hive tools to clean off, because they were sticky with honey. I didn't notice that a bee had hitched a ride on one, and when I put it in the sink, she felt threatened and stung me. Poor little thing gave her honeybee life because I careful! It's okay, I'm suffering a bit. The stings don't usually bother me but my finger is swollen and achy tonight. I shall survive! Unlike the bee. :(

  2. I'd be careful with those chicken - if you don't give them enough love, they might start boobie-trapping the eggs. Chickens are crafty like that!

  4. That is one imposing, beady eyed chicken. I love the scarecrow setup but I also wonder about the choice of beer. Are scarecrows disloyal like that?

    It's an attempted murder! (murder of crows that is... perhaps they don't like Bud)

  7. Thanks for the warning that my chickens will peck my eyes out if I don't mention them enough. My daughter has a bunch of new rescues so I may be adding to the flock! ~ Maureen
