Tinker Verve

creating with spirit & enthusiasm…often with great results

It’s always good to be home….

I’ve been MIA, A being key here – yesterday alone I put 540 miles on my car.

I had to assess my chickens first this morning.


All eleven are still there. 


I opened their little hatch door last week but they will not go outside on their own.  I tried to push them out today but they would only scatter.  I called them a ‘bunch of chickens’ and left them alone.



I picked a handful of strawberries for a smoothie.




The honeybees that were in our orchard last month are now on the raspberries…working their magic. 

May and June.  Soft syllables, gentle names for the two best months in the garden year: cool, misty mornings gently burned away with a warming spring sun, followed by breezy afternoons and chilly nights.  …it’s time for work to begin.                     – Peter Loewer

I officially kicked the kittens outside, food, water and even their litter box.  They seem to only be capable of naughtiness!
That black one is so hard to photograph – he’s so black!

  2. Tell Lauren I think the chickens are adorable! …although it must be some ‘nana’ thing, coz I think all babies are adorable at the moment, even mice (which I hate!) hmmm Chicks and kittens so close together – do you think there will be feathers flying :)… Although yours live in “The Chicken Hilton” don’t they, so they will be nice and safe from the wild animals 🙂
    bigs hugs to you my friend xoxoxo
