Don's new blog!



Don started a new blog, A View from the Green Barn, about life on our little farm.
-
He has ordered chicks to be delivered the first week of April, and I think this prompted blogging. He visited many chicken blogs these last few months while researching how to raise chickens (which he's actually done already back in Milford on our previous farm). His favorite line became: "I google chicks on the Internet." He'll also raise quail, and who knows what this will lead to!
-
Oh no, two bloggers in the same house!

Oh Ruth, these are such beautiful photos!
The clothes line, the sheets in the breeze, the blue clothes basket, the adirondak(?) chair, the pink climber, the white bushy stuff - just perfect!

I don't know if I will be able to read Don's blog if he writes about chopping chickens' heads off!

Ruth said...

Thanks, Letitia. These are from last spring and summer, alas we are still in the dead of winter, but the birds seem to think spring is close at hand.

How about we ask Don not to ever post anything about killing anything? He's raising the chickens for eggs, but his dad wants him to grow some broilers to eat. :| Oh, hey, since I'm taking the pictures, I don't plan to photograph any butchering. So you're at least safe from visuals.

The chair is familiar
Hello Chair !

Its a good idea Ruth, exchanging ideas on one subject. Soon Don's blog would be a source of information, which is a great service.

Ruth said...

Wesrey, you should see one guy's profile pic, a CLOSE-up of a chicken head, so funny! We'll have fun with this idea, thanks!

Poor Papa, we've made him a BLOGGER!

Ruth said...

Swedehart, Uncle Don made the same mistake I did once: he thinks you're Swede! :)

Ruth said...

Ah rauf, you know what that Chair's name is, and I respect you for not mentioning it, knowing how you feel about its name. (Freefalling dropped the name, alas.)

Knowing Don, he will offer a lot of useful information, he's a very good teacher.

Heather said...

Well, Don's blog will become my second favorite blog--next to yours. :)

I am awaiting the chickies! Can't wait for photos!

Ruth said...

So sweeet, Heather! :)

I can't wait to TAKE them pictures.

Drowsey Monkey said...

There are chicken blogs? This is a crazy world, eh?

lol @ googling chicks...ahahaha

Ruth said...

Swedehart, yes, you are quite the trickster.

Ruth said...

Drowsey, have you ever clicked on one of your profile links and gone to see what other bloggers have that link? Like, "All About Eve," check out all the bloggers that put that movie as a favorite:

I watched it the other night, BTW. What a great movie. But gosh, the old ones are so melodramatic! Actors would never get away with that now. But it was classic when they did it. Mmmm, Bette Davis.

Ginnie said...

I had no clue! YAY for Don! I will immediately add him to my blogroll!!!

Ruth said...

He surprised me too, Boots! Sunday I came in from shooting with my new camera, and he announced it. What a big boy! He did it all by himself. :)

Bob Johnson said...

Very cool Ruth, as always love your images.

Ruth said...

Thanks, Bob. It will be lots of fun to watch Don's blog.
