Quite a surprise to wake up to several inches of snow in the morning, mid May.
Gorgeous, just unexpected for Mother’s Day.
The pigs were non-plussed. Maybe they’ve seen snow before, but it doesn’t seem like it.
The squirrels were very funny, bounding around in the snow, tunneling and popping up through it like gophers. Competition is heightened since I blocked squirrel access to the bird feeders, and they’re stuck with what they can find on the ground.
Evidently, they inspected the feed storage in the morning, to see if there was any early access.
Then there were the chickens. It was brisk today, so I left the door to the GH closed for awhile, and when I opened it, they surged up to me and out the door. Annnnnd, stopped short.
Necks were long.
Consensus was to promptly go back inside!
These birds are enjoying continued warmth and luxury accomodations far past their usual eviction date. I always plant tomatoes in the GH on May 1, which means moving the chicken coops outside for the summer and a major house clean. Not this year. I’ve got nothing to put in the GH yet, because my starts are growing slow and are too small, sooo, the chickens benefit. They’re really dust-bathing up a storm by the far doors.
It was a warm day and the snow was all gone by the end of it, just a morning novelty.
Happy Mother’s Day!
