I must confess that I am just a tad jealous of you gals and your girls, (chckens). When I see them running around your gardens I think. “How fun is that?”
I have a couple of chickens in my garden, but they don’t do much running around.
That was until yesterday. When I walked out for my morning look about one of my girls asked me if I wanted to play a game. Obviously, I thought that meant a game of chicken because well, she’s a chicken.
I had images of her and I waddling (do chickens waddle) towards each other until one of us got all tuckered out.
But no, she wanted to play hide & seek.
This is where she usually resides. A nice little spot under the pergola. Isn’t she cute? My sister, Julie and friend, Dolly carved her using a chain saw out of a hunk of wood.
She asked me to cover my eyes. Before I knew it she had hopped up under my little Annabelle Hydrangea.
Seriously, does she think I can’t see her? Pitiful hiding place if you ask me.
Then I spied her hiding in the pumpkin vines. Still not sure if she gets the concept of hiding.
She’s doing a little better in the herb garden.
Oh my gosh, now she’s right out in plain sight. Surprised that she chose this spot. I would’ve thought that my jumping frog would frighten her. After all, she is chicken!
Under the Weeping Mulberry tree.
Oh yeah, she’s getting the hang of this game!
I think that the colored bottles attracted her to this spot.
Oh yes, by George I think she’s got it. It took me a while to find her here!
After all that running around she was tuckered out and had to run (I mean waddle) to her nest.
Must admit, I was a little tired myself. But what fun the two of us had. So much so that I am thinking of making this game a tradition for the grandies. Wouldn’t they love to play hide and seek with my chicken each time they come.
They’ll be here Sunday to celebrate my birthday. Yes, today is my birthday, and it’s a biggie! No wonder I was all tuckered out. At my age I’m surprised I could even
run waddle around at all. lol!
I’ll let you know if they enjoy the game.
I’ll be sharing with:
