I don't know about you , but I am so tired of winter this year! I know that winter here in South Carolina is nothing like most of you have. We did get snow this year and it hung around for almost a week and shut schools and towns down here. I grew up in Michigan so I know how long winters can be. I moved here to South Carolina to escape the snow and ice. Well , the last week or so has been unusually warm and sunny. I never get tired of gazing at the beautiful clear blue skies here . The wind , when it blows smell so wonderful and so clean. Today when I was sitting out on my back deck looking at the woods all around us , I saw a tree that is already starting to bud out!! How cool!
I know that my chickens are loving this weather, They are so funny, they love to sit in the sun, or roll around in the dirt they manage to scratch up in their run , looking all crazy like when they do . I never get tired of watching them scratch and peck, and I love to listen to them all talk to each other. I just wish they would hurry up and start laying those big brown eggs for me ! Anyway, I hope that spring hurries up, I am so tired of looking at bare trees, but the one that is starting to bud gives me hope on this beautiful 70 degree , breezy day. So , I sit, and I patiently wait to see those leaves from here, on my deck, in the woods. Hurry up Spring!
