Last summer, a number of chicks hatched from the incubator. As the chicks grow, you really get to know their characters.
Day old chick
There are the cute ones.
Chicks on arm
The cheeky ones.
The shy ones.
The bossy ones.
Now we have new chicks and the
getting to know you will start all over again.
In memory of Mac – who was one of the shy ones.
It is the time of year for blossoms. Enjoy.

Six on Saturday – check out The Propagator.
In celebration of World Earth Day, a gallery of some of our wonderful pollinators taking flight.
Regular readers will know I have written before about our Robin Friend. One great advantage of having a robin that is near-tame is that he allows us to get up real close. He was quite comfortable to preen away, with me standing right beneath him.
Inspired by this week’s
Lens-artist Challenge and of course Robin-friend himself.
We have been enjoying lots of lovely spring sunshine today. Does the soul good.
Also doing the soul good is seeing the first of our solitary bees – these are Ashy mining bees. Beautiful bees that need a bare soil bank to nest it.
Tulips have also opened – adding splashes of red.
The tadpoles are growing.
The comfrey is flowering in the polytunnel and not far off outside.
We don’t have much spouting broccoli, but at least there is some.
And finally a lovely present of a flowering currant, just need to find a spot for it now.
The Propagator for hosting Six on Saturday.
Have a lovely Easter everyone.
