Ice on my Chicken Netting this morning.
We got off with a lot less snow than predicted in Charlottesville Virginia so the trees seem to be OK - I only heard one crack this morning. It’s thawing so fingers crossed no major limb losses.
When it’s cold outside give your animals a little more somp’im somp’im.
One of my White Leghorns was enjoying his greens in the freezing snow and rain.

I made it through another Holiday without consuming bird.
This guy is one of the pardoned Turkeys from last year that lives in Harrisonburg at White Oak Lavender Farm. He and his buddy are so freakin’ massive and amazingly fun!
Being around such wonderful animals such as Turkeys and Chickens has given me a new appreciation of them and solidifies my decision not to consume them.
Where has the blue sky gone ?
Just wet, dark, & cold here in Cville, VA… this photo taken last week.
I just finished a really interesting book, Saving Monticello by Mark Leepson, about the history of the house that Thomas Jefferson built at Monticello. This Lion Statue that used to sit on the front steps as you entered the house was auctioned off in the 1920s because it was not original to Thomas Jefferson’s day. Amazingly it is still in Charlottesville for all to see. Read more about the torrid history of this famous residence on my blog:
Forsythia amazes me. I’m not sure how this little bloom is hanging on through the freezing weather, but it is!
Photo taken last week in Charlottesville, Virginia on Forsythia Hill.
The most scenic farm in Charlottesville, Virginia complete with Texas Longhorn Cattle! Who would have thought such a breed would be way up here!
Spotted on Garth Road.
