SadMimosaBlossoms

The overnight rain has made the mimosa blossoms look like sad creatures in a Dr. Seuss story. A little rain doesn’t stop me from preparing a vegetable bed for cabbage transplants. A freshly dug patch attracts the attention of a mother hen and her chicks. It’s a prime spot to teach her chicks how to find and catch earthworms. Over and over she picks up earthworms and drops them for her chicks. They grab them and run off to eat them without being hassled by the other chicks.
