Rain Happy and a Peep out of the Box!

We were blessed with several inches of rain in my area. Nearby areas had 6 and 8 inches! I think the river is actually predicted to reach a low flood stage! Hopefully all the stock tanks are filled! My yard happy. This is my happy Texas Wisteria.

This is a salvia. I don't remember the exact variety and am too lazy to walk into my bedroom to find my gardening notebook where I probably have it noted! It has frozen to the ground and come back for several years now.

Another Amaryllis is blooming.

Hmm, a little out of order here. This is the amaryllis before it opened.
Now to skip to another subject close to my heart. I came home from school today, and as usual, hurried out to check on my peeps. One had managed to get out of the box. She was not happy to be all alone. Thankfully, she didn't make much effort to get away from me. She could have made the job difficult considering all the clutter in my "barn". She seemed very happy to be back with the rest of the girls. I'm sorry I didn't get any photos. I was more concerned with catching her while I could reach her.
Ya'll Come Back,


  1. You do have some pretty flowers there in Texas. The baby chicks are sure loking cute. I had a chicken feeder, I bought at a store a few years ago. It was filled with jelly beans, I wonder what ever happened to it?
    Have a wonderful day!

  2. I'd like to see a pic of your amarylis when it blooms. I always seem to murder mine! SueX

  3. OH, I finally got the comment to work! Took me a while! I love the wisteria, I can almost smell it.

  4. Things sure are looking good at the Cackleberry Cottage! We got two days of rain and it was probably 8 inches. It knocked a lot of blooms off the plants but I'm sure they will re-bloom!

    PS: The chickens are so cute but I would have thought they were having a seizure too if I had seen the Dustbath Drama!

  5. Hey Lorilee! Off the wall question: do you get guano from your bat tenants? Much of it? And how are your martins?


Howdy, Thanks for dropping in. I love to hear from you!
