This week we had some new additions to Green Acres! I finally convinced my sweet husband (after 5 years) that I just can't live without having some chickens. I just LOVE my new little babies!
This is Susie. She is a White Silkie. She is so sweet!
This is Geraldine. She is a White Leghorn Hen. She is a couple of weeks older than the other chicks and she acts like a Mommy to the little ones!
This is Henrietta. She is a Buff Orpington Hen.
This is Rosie. She is a Frizzle Hen. She is soooo cute!!
This is Buttercup. She is a Rhode Island Red Hen.
This is Pickles. She is a Barred Rock Hen.
Soooo, when I went to buy these baby chicks at a Ranch the other day, they had two other cute things that I just had to take home. My husband was not amused....LOL So here is:
This is Peter. He is a Peacock!!
And this is Tom. He is a Tom Turkey!! He has quite the personality!
I am just finishing up the final touches of my Chicken Coop and I will post pictures as soon as I am done. It is bright Yellow and I have been hanging up some of my vintage signs on the outside and inside.
The weather is starting to cool down a bit. Its still in the 80s-90s but you can tell the nights are starting to get cooler. We don't have actual Fall here in Southern California, the weather just cools down a bit.
I just went out and took some random shots of some of my flowers for Bloomin' Tuesday.
My favorite rose bush, Betty Boop!
After 4 years I finally get my first lime on my tree!
Some of my Red Cabbage that the wild animals and Charlie the Turtle haven't found in my garden yet!
This is a Chalk Board I just got done with. It is shaped like a house with half of it a chalk board and the other half with twine to hang pictures or cards. It even has a shelf at the bottom for chalk.
I used broken china plates pieces and pink glass and made a cute design up at the top in Mosaic
I am 100% Italian. I am married to the greatest guy. We have 8 children, 18 grandchildren, 3 spoiled dogs, 1 spoiled cat, 2 Tortoises, Koi Fish and a Blue and Gold Macaw Parrot with an attitude.
We have been so blessed with a wonderful family, wonderful life, and many wonderful friends.
I love gardening and making all kinds of crafts. My passion is Mosaics and Stained Glass.
We live in a wonderful country Victorian home on 3 acres and have a 5 acre Avocado Grove next door. We call it "GREEN ACRES".
