We have been very lucky with weather this Fall. November has been very mild. I am not complaining..on the contrary, I have been loving it. Great for getting all the Fall chores done,
But today December arrived…bringing a raw, cold, dark day with on and off sleet/freezing rain. Yuck. Well I suppose it had to happen..we are approaching the Solstice..but it is not my favorite.
And my girls aren’t fond of it either. They are hanging out in the coop feeling a bit sorry for themselves.
Amber really hates the cold and Prudence is hanging out with her.
Beatrix (who is fine by the way..seemingly recovered from her crop issues) is also in the coop, wondering what to do.
I have put some of the pumpkins and indian corn left over from the Fall window boxes in their run. They have been enjoying them…but not today.
They went out briefly earlier, but not for long. They just don’t like it!
I gave them some new straw so they would have something to do.
The rest of the pumpkins from the Fall window boxes are piled in the pumpkin patch. The squirrels are still busy feasting on them, but some will be left. We will get a few plants in the Spring I think.
Our wood was finally delivered and we managed to stack in when the weather was milder.
It should keep us toasty warm this winter.
Speaking of winter and the Solstice….
Let the festivities begin! 🎄🎅🎁🔔
