This has not been a good week for Kentucky. So many tornados, so many deaths and injuries. There was a tornado about 15 minutes southeast of where I live. Several deaths, a lot of injuries and houses demolished. I have a lot of relatives that live in that area. As far as I know everyone is ok.
Please pray for all those affected by the tornados this week in Kentucky.
In between the bad weather this week, the kids and I have been getting some work done outside. One of my favorite things to do in the spring is put my rocking chair back on the front porch. The chickens seemed to like it, too. lol These are the only 2 chickens we have left. We are planning on getting some new chicks and most likely turkeys this spring.
The rocking chair will be getting a new coat of paint shortly. 🙂
The Daffodils in the front bulb garden are still blooming. The full size ones are starting to open now, as you can see on the back right.
There was one that opened fully, but lost it’s battle with the wind, so I brought it in the house.
The Wild Rose bushes are starting to leaf out all over the property. This one is growing on a wagon wheel in front of the house. This was taken after we trimmed it back. The 3 bushes all along the front of the house got a good trimming. And the trimmings were placed in the compost pile.
The kids and I also gave our 2 Butterfly Bushes in the front yard a good trimming.
We also laid newspaper and cardboard in the vegetable garden and the herb garden. The grass and weeds are already growing here. Now’s the time to get the cardboard, newspaper or other mulch down to stay ahead of the weeds.
I was very excited to see the Lilacs starting to leaf out. We transplanted these here from a nearby property 2 years ago. This will be their 3rd summer in this spot. I hope it will be the summer they bloom for the first time! I love Lilacs!
