I didn't do as much exploring as he did , but enjoyed watching
him climb .............
A little further down stream , they discovered our small bridge that had washed away awhile back. We need to get it out and replace it. It was a really peaceful afternoon and I enjoyed my time with Curious J and Mojo.

I've been letting them out during the day , but trying to get them to roost inside at night.
The 4 adult guinea have been busy looking after them and teaching them how to be a guinea.
They stay busy all day long running them back to the underbrush or into the woods.
Sunday night they decided not to come in and roost , so they spent the night in the woods , roosting in the trees. They all survived , thankfully. Tonight , all but one went into roost , I tried to chase it in , but it became spooked and disappeared into the dark and I couldn't find it. I hope it isn't spotted by any predators and makes it through the night.

and they're so cute peeping out the nesting box.
They haven't came out of the nest yet , but it should be soon.
I think it was to cold the last few days , but they should be out and hopping about this week as it warms up.

My friend Judie ask what was hanging in the tree near the garden when I posted the pics of Little Froggy and Mojo in my last post. So here she is , it's my garden angel. I originally hung her there to help scare the deer off , but now she just keeps watch over the garden. She's no longer a threat to the deer after being there so long unless I add perfume or cologne to her dress.

Last Friday while out feeding the animals , Little Time and I spotted some more daffodils that were blooming.
When he saw me taking a pic , he ran up and wanted to pose next them (LOL).
Since the weather has been so nice , I've been planting more garlic. Little Froggy was eager to help.
He planted about 10 cloves ..............

But this is what they looked like last Friday ......
and this is what the cuties looked like yesterday at a week old.
Candy Corn was checking me out to see why I had her baby out of the nesting box. But I just had to check this one out , it looks like a wild rabbit. I'm curious to see what color it will be as it grows.
Yep , she's doing a head count to make sure I put that baby back in the box ( LOL ), she's a wonderful Mom.

This is Iris , she lays white eggs with beautiful school bus yellow yolks.
She's the shy hen , I'm really surprised that she allowed me to capture this pic.
Jenny and Violet were hiding in the bushes today , guess they didn't want their picture taken ............ bad feather day , perhaps (LOL).
It was almost 70 degrees today , so this trio was seeking shade under the old truck. I'm thankful for my chickens and the eggs they provide us.

I was just telling my sister the other night that I thought they were all females , since I had not got them separated and we hadn't had any babies. I haven't checked their sexes , but the man told me the small rabbits were male , I was begining to think otherwise. But yesterday I found out for sure , Candy Corn was trying to build her nest. I gathered some soft dried grass for her and she began building her nest right away.
She was busy as could be , stuffing the nesting box .........
and Checking it .............
and resting in between all that hard work.

Little Froggy enjoyed a little tree climbing while we were outside.
He would climb up and walk out on the climb while holding onto the limb above until it started bending , then he would sit down and and try to slide down (LOL).
As we were walking around the yard , I noticed the dogwoods and the pink magnolia were budding also. It's much to early for them to be budding and blooming , I'm sure they'll be hurt by the cold weather before winter is over.

There are a lot of memories stashed up there ....... sport plaques ....... brownie /girl scout sashes , school work ............
and magazines ........ I kept asking myself ..... Why did I keep all of these magazines ?
The kids art work , birthday cards and postcards ............
Cute art .......... girl with a upside down umbrella and the arm to hold it was added as an after thought ( LOL ).
We also found a few old items that were stashed away up there too. It's been a walk down memory lane for sure. I just can't part with the sentimental items , so I plan to buy 4 totes, one for myself , Dh and my 2 daughters to put all of our keepsakes in. They'll be like gaint time capsules in the attic.
