One of my hens went broody a week ago, but she is a silkie so that odd to be expected 😂

The Eurasian-collared Doves are starting to sing, but they might do this every year. However, I did hear and see a Lesser Goldfinch make singing yesterday, and that is definitely unusual! The weather in February might be warm this year, but I think it will still be rainy and slushy.

But, as one poem says: Whether the weather be fine, or whether the weather be not. Whether the weather be cold, or whether the weather be hot. We'll whether the weather, whatever the weather. Whether we like it or not!

Silkie number one for the year decided to be broody today. She was contemplating it yesterday.

I set eggs in the bator, but it might be a little early for good fertility

Our grass grows very slow in winter because of our mild climate. It only browns back in summer. The side effect of this climate is that I need to take my truck to the car wash and remove the moss and lichen yearly.

The cottonwood buds are starting to swell. Normal year I pick them early March. Right now they are looking a week or so from being ready.
What do you do with them?

It helps heal skin but it does work to help relax muscles. Several of my herbal books recommend it for them. I think the scent helps as well. There were a lot of cottonwoods around when I was little. It smells like spring to me.

I don’t have cottonwood trees nearby. I’ll have to look for some.
