of the chicken yard.
Hopefully, this will keep my chickens safe from future coyote attacks.
They coyotes are appearing every day. This very young and very starved coyote was following behind Sophie and I, because it picked up the scent of the scraps that I had carried out to place at the far end of the woods, to keep the coons and the coyotes away from the house.. I often feed the scraps to the chickens, but if I leave too much and the chickens don't eat it, the scraps draw the wild animals into their yard.
I was able to get pretty close to this young coyote for this photo. It was so naive and starved to be very afraid of Sophie and I. It did keep a good distance from me.
The dry brown ground has started to awaken from it's winter slumber
and the daffodils are starting to blossom in their vibrant yellow.
Such a pretty sight at the base of this ancient mesquite tree.
I hope they multiply and bloom each season as the years pass by.
The warm weather has brought out the wasp and they explore the rose bushes for a drop of water.
In spite of the pretty blossoms, I am brought back to the reality of how dry it is by the hard blowing wind today. It blows the dirt and the tumbleweeds across the bare cotton field onto the share croppers house.
I brought home an armful of English Daisies from a local nursery........
with one thing in mind..........
to capture their beauty with my needle and thread.

Has the weather warmed and awakened your grounds and blossoming flowers?
Are you still under a blanket of snow?
