The chicks are getting bigger. I have learned a lot about chickens in the last several weeks. I know more learning will come. When the chicks would stand on John's leg he would laugh so hard. I enjoy watching them and I do so hope that they will not get eaten by a cat or a badger will try to open the coop. Both of these are stories I have heard of happening in the last few weeks!
Butterflies are known for their unusual life cycle that includes a spectacular metamorphosis from caterpillar to a colorful winged adult. They have an erratic yet graceful flight pattern that attracts attention when they pass. The Ancient Greek word for butterfly is psȳchē, which means soul. I particularly admire their symmetry and kaleidoscope of colors.
