What a surprise! Yesterday afternoon one of my missing chickens came walking out of the woods with 8 or 9 little tiny chicks! I have been feeling so bad about Bo killing the other ones. I thought there were three gone, but this little hen was doing her thing in a safe place. As soon as she feels confident enough for me to come close, I will get some pictures. They are so cute. Since we have these HUGE crows she probably will keep the chicks pretty close to her for a while. Our weather has been in the upper 90's and last night we had a very strong rain storm. Just west of us they had nickel sized hail. The lightening and thunder were incredible. Since we are not air conditioned in this old farm house it got pretty warm when I had to close all the windows because of the rain and wind. This morning its sunny and beautiful and everything looks so clean. I'm so glad I got my yard mowed just before it rained. This flower is called Campanula. It grows all around the house and is quite large, about 1-1/2 to 3 feet tall. So pretty and only lasts a couple weeks.
