Chickens Gardening Stories from Our Nest Tours

Signs of Happiness

This week, I decided to share with you a few photos that just make me smile and dream of warmer days ahead.


Fifi, our Black Silkie Bantam
When Dolly hatched her own brood of Silkies
Morels pop up in unexpected places in the garden.
My favorite, Lily of the Valley
Roses bloom near my favorite Cape Cod beach
Fresh eggs from the girls
A walk through tall grasses where wildflowers grow
Chicken hugs, my inseparable girls-Oyster Cracker and Sunshine.
So tell me, what makes you smile?  I would love for your to share this week, things in life that bring joy and happiness to your life.

Hello friends, welcome! Follow along on our chicken, beekeeping, gardening, crafting and cooking adventures from Cape Cod.

  • It would be so nice to have flowers and warm summer days! I'm looking forward to that too. We're still getting snow.

  • Wow! Look at those morels! Your girls certainly warmed up my heart this morning! Enjoy!

  • Really nice pictures. Lots of stuff makes me smile. This morning…the birds in my feeder! Blessings from Wisconsin.

  • Thanks so much for hosting this hop! Sorry, but I messed up on naming my link…. I thought it wanted my name, not the name of my post. Is there a way to change this or delete it? If it needs to be deleted, I'll just post it again correctly.

    • No worries, I can fix that no problem. Thank you so much for linking up to the hop.

  • Kp

    thank you for hosting!

  • I love these photos, especially the last one. Those two are so cute together 🙂

  • Thank you for the warm smiles 🙂 In reading about OysterCracker and Sunshine, do you think like breeds care for each other more? I'm going to be getting a companion for my little RIR, Millie, and wonder if another RIR would be best or at least another red hen – what do you think?

  • These pictures are what is in store for us here in New England after we get by this up and coming storm called David. Looking forward to LOTS of flowers!

  • Oh, such lovely warm images.. They made me smile too! I'm dreaming of getting in the greenhouse soon sewing zinnia seeds and planting dahlias. Warmer days must be around the corner! Thanks for hosting Melissa! 🙂 Deb
