Off like a rocket.

We were given this beautiful amaryllis for Christmas off my Uncle and his family.  Well, I swear if you sit there for an hour, it'll grow before your eyes.  Isn't it pretty?  It's been out of its box around a month.
The chickens are revolting.  They made a bid for freedom, knocking down our temporary accommodation, which we put back up, but they are getting wise to it. 
The ducks also made a bid for freedom and spent a good 15 minutes in the beck that runs along one side of our land, to the river.  They were ushered back in of course but accidents happen (in relation to the Avian Flu measures).

So between my plants and escaping animals, they've all shot off like rockets in their own way!


  1. Think your poultry may be voting with their feet! x

  2. Hopefully not much longer until they can all roam free.

  3. I have to admit I don't know much about what's going on - do you have an end date in sight for keeping them penned in? Or have they left it as a "we'll see"?
    The ducks went on a rampage today here as well. We have 5 acres and they insisted on playing in the ditch by the road. On a blind curve. They were not happy when I ruined their plans.

    1. It looks like we will have them out on March 1st, so not long now.
      I think there's something in the air!
