The snow is pretty much melted and gone. There has been lots of sunshine and a few hints of warmth. Spring is trying to spring but nothing says a new fresh season is here like seeing the chickens roaming the local lawns.

All summer I looked forward to them waddling around as I passed a few particular houses. The autumn gave me a few glimpses here and there and then winter was blank. When there was no snow I still found myself searching as I drove past hoping for a hen. Just one scurrying around would bring me a smile.

Well, it must officially be spring because the chickens are back. 

Joy of joy my little friends are out and about again.

I love spring. Now I need to start planning my garden!
