Spring! Finally it's stopped raining and the flowers are coming out. The chickens are running around in the orchard peering intently at all the water coming out of the gopher holes. Lou walked around the driveway this morning picking up worms (!!) out of the driveway and put them into the flower boxes. I'm not sure the robins appreciated this! The next thing we're going to do is put in the bee-hives. This will be a new and exciting venture for both of us -- Lou'll be all suited up and ready to go, open up the hive to see what the bees are doing, and I'll be standing back waiting...waiting...RUNNING to get whatever it was he forgot!!
