The snow is finally melting away, which I am incredibly happy about. I was taking a walk around our house and saw that all of my daylilies are starting to spring out of the ground. My irises are still buried under a little pile of snow. When we first moved into this house several years ago, I thought I would pull up a lot of these daylilies. I wanted to have other flowers mixed in, of the pink and purple variety. But, as the time went on these beautiful orange blossoms started to grow on me. I don’t have to do anything to them during the year and they just keep growing every spring! They are a great cutting flower to freshen up the inside of my house during the summer as well.
With the melting snow, unfortunately, comes the mud. It has been kind of warm, kind of rainy the past several days, and because of that, the chicken run is becoming a mud pit. I think they are looking for dust baths, but instead are just taking mud baths…I plan to pick up more straw at the store to put down and hopefully that will combat the wetness in the run.
Do you have signs of spring at your house? Any tips for mud season and chickens?
