Sorry, friends, I have gotten behind on blog posting and blog reading the past couple of days! I will catch up soon, plus I will draw the name for the giveaway I held last month, and let you know who won and what they got! :)
Meanwhile, I bring you Errol Flynn and his muff girlfriend...
I left this box on a couple of bales of straw, and these two were hanging out in it for quite a while. And if you look carefully, you can see that Miss Muff laid an egg in there! It's just peaking our from under her. Errol was taking good care of his woman and their unborn child. Which became an egg salad sandwich. Oops.
The other muff, Emma, keeps disappearing somewhere in the barn. The last time that happened, she showed up one day with eleven chicks!! We need to track her down, but she's very wily. She'll show up for a little while, then vanish into thin air. It's beyond me why she'd go broody at this time of year, but the weather is so screwed up (it was almost 18C/65F yesterday) that it's possible she's confused. Or just not such a hot mother, planning children for winter!
My honey bees were out flying around yesterday. In December. Do you know how weird that is?!
More posts soon and I promise to get a name picked in the giveaway!
