~ ~ R.I.P. Ms. Buttercup ~ ~

Yesterday afternoon something very freaky happened , the goats seem to prefer sleeping off the ground. I was looking for another plastic box , small table or something for them climb up on until hubby has time to build them a small platform. There was a small black plastic box near the dog lot , the grands and I had used it for a table while playing outside , as I was lifting the box when I smelled a horrible stench and discovered the missing hen from a couple of weeks ago. I'm not sure how she got under the box , but I feel terrible that I didn't find her in time. I can't believe she couldn't get out , the box wasn't that heavy and apparently she didn't make any noise. I feed the dogs each day and never heard a thing , but maybe she was hurt when she got trapped underneath. Anyway , thought I would warn those of you that have free range chickens , if you have a chicken that disappears , be sure to check up under things around the yard. I gave her a proper burial yesterday , may she rest in peace.

Oh, no! So sorry to hear this.
Good to give others a warning.

I haven't found out what type
of nettle that is. I am sure
it is some type though.

I do not know if I told you or
not that I read, that not all
Hawthrons have throns.

Herbal Roots Zine I posted a
poem of sorts. Not as good
as hers but I tried. It is
under her Peppermint post with
her poem.

God Bless You and Yours!!!
