Spring Fever

Posted by on March 20, 2007 in cook, farm | 2 comments

It was so beautiful this weekend, I spent as much time as possible outside. First I went to a couple local nurseries and got a few new plants. The husband had to give me a birthday present a little early, because he was so excited about it. It’s the terra cotta chicken in the pictures. Isn’t it cute? I love it.


The chickens were, of course, very curious about what I was doing. I planted some herbs and flowers in this pot. I hope they’ll have a chance. Yesterday there were about five chickens perched on the edge of the pot investigating it’s contents.


Then I made one of my favorite breakfasts, potatoes, mushrooms, onions and fresh herbs, a grilled tomato and fresh eggs, over easy. Sprinkle with a little hot sauce, grab a good book, sit in the rocking chair on the porch and put up my feet.


And enjoy the view and the beautiful day.




  1. Sadly, I think the crazy chickens have been nibbling and scratching at many of my perennials! I planted a couple hundred tulips last fall, and have yet to see anything coming up. I think the chooks have been enjoying a most expensive spring buffet.

  2. Oh yum, that breakfast looks fab! We were supposed to be having soup for supper but I’m going to have to have egg and bacon now. 🙂
