I took this photo of one of my irises about to bloom:
I thought I would find something positive and hopeful today. There were singing birds, buzzing bees, and late in the day, I spotted a hen with several tiny chicks! I hope I will see her again tomorrow. The bar hen(named so for the pattern of her feathers) still has three chicks, and they are getting bigger. I hope they survive!
Ah, spring on “the farm”!
