Sorry to be away so long

Hi All,

Sorry to be away so long, still having computer problems. I am using to old standby so cannot share pictures, etc.

So, things are perking along here, nothing exciting, also nothing bad. My garden has it's ups and downs, lots of peas to harvest and freeze. The strawberries were a dissapointment, too much rain and cold I guess. I have planted more herbs and look forward to harvest and drying those.

Jim worked all weekend framing in part of a stall which will become the chicken coop. Did I mention I bought some chickens?? I got a variety pack, can't remember all the names but they lay brown eggs and two of them lay Easter eggs. I have taken some pictures and as soon as I have my computer up and running I will share them with you.

I have been planting more roses to replace the ones lost over the winter, very pleased with most of the new ones. Lots of flowers have come up, coneflowers and others whose name I do not remember. Hollyhocks are also sprung up all over the place, they are so pretty. I also found out that they come in yellow and some other colors so will have to order some of those also.

I hope everyone is enjoying their summer, lots of fun and love.

See you soon.
