Signs of Spring

Kind of silly since Spring actually started what....2 weeks ago? I'm excited about a few little flowers though. Funny thing is, I forgot I planted them! Now that I see them I remember that my mom had given me a pot of bulbs that she had gotten for Easter. 

They had almost died off by then but she asked if I wanted to plant them somewhere. I took them home with me and when we had a chicken death shortly after, I put them in the top layer of the freshly dug chicken grave. So, yeah.....our chicken graves are blooming.

I guess it could be worse! It's odd though since these are into the woods a bit and the bulbs I have placed in the wide open gardens aren't even breaking the surface yet. You would think it would be colder in the woods and would bloom later? Who knows. 

I did find some bulbs this week that said "deer resistant" on them, so I bought 2 packs. I'm hoping they might be chicken resistant too. I planted them by the main coop. These might end up like the Tiger Lily's I had to move twice. They chickens let the leaves grow but eat the flower buds as soon as they sprout. *sigh* I'll keep you updated!



  1. What a beautiful reminder of your lost chicken. I love the deep, rich purple color. I am so ready for spring!


    1. Thank you! I love the color too. I think I'm going to try to find a lighter purple for the newest grave. It's warming up quickly here, hopefully Spring is here to stay!
