Ladies Pinned In, New Front Perennial Bed and Hail Baby Hail...
We did it! Two words, chicken run! Boy oh boy are the ladies pissed. My hubby put up a nice big chicken run last weekend so this year we won't have to fence the garden and watch the chickens devour my perennial beds and herb garden...and you don't even want to know what they did to the pond plants!
This is a picture of my Silkie Bantam and my Malaysia Serama.
I have put in a new perennial bed in the front yard. There are three trees in it but the are only about a foot tall so you can't see them yet. (Mr. Sparkles McGee photo bombed!)
I made these hammered copper plant labels for my herb garden. Very easy to do. I bought the plain white plastic ones and painted them with Rust-Oleum Hammered Copper paint. Then used a black sharpie marker to write the plant names on them and then used a waterproof spray Lacquer to seal them. I love the way they turned out and they are a hell of a lot cheaper then the real copper ones at the garden stores!
Last but not lest we had a whopper of a hail storm, luckily my daughter had the camera and ran outside to snap some pictures! It lasted for about an hour.
It is snowing today and the sun is out...creepy! Can't wait to get the veggies out of my house and into the ground but around here you don't plant until after Mother's Day, that is unless you like frozen brown plants!
