Just comments about my art, kids, animals and the eccentricity of it all.

Sweet little hen tucked in her nest of old leaves, she talks to her babies while they are in the egg, they know her voice before they are even hatched. This one it Metoo. I think she has half a dozen eggs.
Then there is Minimee, her nest is in the iris and daylilies, with an overhang of old roses, very picturesque. She is a fierce little mom, I have seen her launch herself at the dogs when they even look too closely at her babies. It is obvious she is terrified but she puts her own life on the line to protect her babies. Of course she is in no danger but she does not know that.
Babies should be hatching soon!
