~ Hard Day's Work ~

Yesterday started out with a beautiful sunrise ,

after my coffee and a little blogging , I went out to feed the chickens. Just as I was getting ready to start raking leaves , that little hawk came flying in and landed in a oak tree near the dog lot. I wish you could have heard me hollering at that bird and making boom , boom sounds like a gun (LOL) , hoping to scare him off. I think it worked , it flew away and I didn't see it anymore yesterday. Of course it probably thought I was a
" human " loony bird :0)

The chickens enjoyed the freshly plowed garden while I was mulching the garlic. I bet there was some good " grub " in the dirt.

Between raking , mulching and picking up sticks I dug a few day lilies and planted them near the pool deck.

I picked up and dumped about 3 loads of sticks in the hugelkultur bed ,

loaded up some rotted wood and started filling in the bed.

It took about 6 wagon loads of leaves to mulch those two rows of garlic , this was the last load.

I finished the mulching , but didn't get as much done on the hugelkultur bed as I would have liked. I was one give out Nana , ready for bath and bed afterwards. It was a hard day's work , but I'm glad it's done.

Nothing like an honest day's work to make a person feel good - even if they are all wore out!
Your garden & beds are looking so great!

I heard a few boom, booms here yesterday, it must have been the echo from your yard :-) Darn hawk, I know ours will drop by a few times after we put our new chickens outside later in June.

lol! Keep an eye out for the hawk though. You never know he might come back or another hawk might show up.

Everything is coming together
nicely and what a wonderful
way to spend the day.

Pam is having a giveaway of
a beautiful painting. I will
put up a link soon.

I made a ship pop-up card
yesterday. I put up photos
on my blog of it.

God Bless You and Yours!!!
