About Me

My photo
I am a 42 year old woman that is about as happy and content as one person can be. My husband of 21 years and our 15 year old daughter live on five and a half acres out in the country. We moved from the city four years ago and never looked back. I homeschool our daughter. We also love our animals. Our daughter has a miniature horse and two rabbits. We also have a border collie, two cats (again), two pot belly pigs, four peafowl, three emus, 2 llamas and an undetermined number of chickens, lets just say ohhh about 200. I have many breeds, from layers to fancy chickens. I love poultry shows, I love fowl in general as I have come to find out through having more than just chickens. Chickens will always be my first love though. I do show some of my birds occasionally.

A Few Pictures

This one below is espccially for Helen. You probably thought I forgot, but I didnt. ;) I wanted to show you a picture of those beautiful weed flowers that are grown up out back. I leave them on the fenceline, I think it is kind of pretty. They are all in the grass too so the ones in the grass get mowed. I have no idea what they are called. Some are whitish and some are lavender.



Here are a couple of shots I took of lady bugs just fooling around outside.

Great pictures Kelly. Thanks for remembering to post them. They surely make me thing of sweet pea blossoms. Beautiful in color. I remember a briar that had those kind of blooms when I was a child. Great picture of the lady bug. Thanks for sharing. Helen

My first thought was that they looked like some kind of orchid.

My first though too was sweet peas. Weeds can be pretty. Paula

Beautiful, I wouldn't cut them down either. I have a tendency to let my lawn grow a little wild from time to time, I can't stand manicured lawns. I'm more of a country girl than I let on. (Hugs) Indigo

Hiya stranger :). Sorry I haven't stopped by cutie but "things" have been going on..LOL
You have such a great eye for taking photos. Their so beautiful! Good job:) I'm so curious as to what those are. I bet my MIL would know. Would you care if I emailed her a picture? They're really pretty.

Have a great Tuesday :)

I do believe those are the genuine, old-fashioned LADY BUGS, as opposed to the more recently arrived Asian Lady Beetles.  You are fortunate indeed.

Cool lady bug pics. I don't think those are weeds. I've seen them before but I can't remember where. Then again, I just went to the kitchen and when I got there, I didn't know why. It just goes to show you, no matter where you go, there you are.
