Tulips 2012!

Just posting all these without much comment because I have been short on time lately, but they are lovely, so I wanted to get them up!

 Posting all three of these just because I think it is so funny you can take several pictures and still not get a great one!

We Ordered Our Catepillars!

Akasha got a butterfly kit for Christmas. We ordered the caterpillars and they have been eating away, and are now already starting to spin cocoons.

Who Knew?

I didn't even realize what type of tree this was when we moved in. I loved the mystery of Spring in Portland!

Getting Bigger and First Visit to the Coop

One of the Golden Comets is so clearly the bossy hen of the group.  She always likes to be  higher up as well.

The Barnevelder almost looks like a little raptor in this picture!

First visit to the coop!

Earth Day

I decided to volunteer for a local Earth Day event this year, and it was alot of fun.

Performance art piece.

Cool indigenous music.

Scene near the music area

I loved all the art I came upon drying on the grass.

Circus area!

Workin' on bikes.

This sweet little lamb was just roaming around, or sometimes hanging out in her crate.

Hangin' out...

Still obsessed with the fence...

Plants, Etc.

This is a little air plant Orion wanted when we saw them at New Seasons:

These are some tomato plants I started from seed that I got at a swap.  I have never started them from seed before, so I am feeling pretty proud of myself.

Leaning to the light.

Stacking egg halves from Easter.  :)

Told you they Grow Fast!

Can you believe they are already in that awkward teenage stage already? Makes me wish I had taken more chick photos.  This was their first trip outside.

They were fascinated with the red fence.  That is Orion's hand trying to tempt them with a grass head.

Kona was stuck on the other side of the fence. 
Checking out a sweet baby.
