First Egg!

Well after 3 months of nuturing and loving the chickens,they have rewarded us with a perfect egg! the first of many I am sure.

I never thought that I would get so excited about an egg, but then I never was so connected the the creator of the egg.

Thank you Ladies

The egg is now safe in the house, waiting for Peter to come home and see it.

One last look at the amazing egg outside the henhouse.

time flies

I am not sure where the summer has gone. It is expected to frost here tonight, so all the plants that will be wintering indoors made the trip today. we have also bee winterizing the chicken coop. putting up storm windows, planting bulbs, it seems I have been doing everything except blogging lately.

Autumn has been beautiful in Minnesota this year, the sugar maples have been putting on an amazing show. It is our first Autumn in the country and there is not a day that goes by where we do not find ourselves grinning with delight that we get to live here.

There has been a lot of work going on inside the house, more pictures on that at another time.

Right now it is just nice to enjoy the short but beautiful days we have here on the farm.
