More Snow…and Sledding with a Chicken

Posted by mrssmythe on March 20, 2017 in Chickens, Critters, Seasons, Week in Review |

First Day of Spring! And, wouldn’t you know it, there’s still snow on the ground. A lot of snow. Typical New England. Things were kind of drippy and melty at the beginning of the week. My rock wall took on a new, slick beauty… and the grass looked like it was covered in lace. But, then […]
