“Yours is the light by which my spirit's born: you are my sun, my moon, and all my stars.”

Summer afternoons with Bronx.
Darius taking a cat nap. He loves the back patio.
Tonight I headed back to the barn to make sure I hadn't left my glasses in with the hen and new chicks. When I opened a door there was a snake. Of course I panicked and ran for Martin screaming. The snake would eat the newly hatched babies. After he killed the snake we had to check the room for more. There was a big eyed field mouse on the top shelf of the tack room. Darius was up with us so I picked him up and we put him up there to take care of the rodent. The blasted thing jumped right off the shelf onto my chest. Geez I screamed. It was chaos. Poor mama hen not getting up off those babies but just a ruffled mess. I know we drive her crazy. She just wants peace.
They are so adorable. I hope they all hatch. It will be nice to start the summer with little ones.
