Chicken in the Road

Was quite a surprise to see a chicken strolling
down the road this afternoon in the village
where we would least expect it,
while some of her chicken friends
 seemed content to be grazing
 along the side of the road.

As we waited for the chicken to cross the road,
a car pulled into a nearby driveway and a frantic
young woman came running down the road 
after the chickens!

They must have made the great escape!

Brody's Story

This drawing/watercolor may be the beginning of a story
I'd like to put together with illustrations about Brody and his little "friend"...
now to follow through.

October Wildlife

There seems to be some youngsters
in our yard recently...
a very cute chipmunk has been scurrying 

And I have seen many birds including this
young white throated sparrow.

It feels magical to be able to stand in the garden
and suddenly catch a glimpse of the wildlife
that lives here or is passing by.
