Sunday Selections

Thanks to River for Sunday Selections. I am posting a few pictures that I have taken this week but haven't found anything to write about them. 


First up my little pet chicken, Chooky. She used to go by the name of Hawkie back before April 2014 but it seemed to stern for her. She is just our little Chooky who loves to be patted and carried about. Well I think she does. She never complains at least.


She is my garden helper most days. I give her grubs if I find any so I am her best friend.


Both sides of my archway are heavy with jasmine. Hopefully they will meet in the middle one day soon. I have been making the most of it while it is in bloom. Bringing some inside and enjoying it while I;m in the garden too.


Bees are really buzzing at the moment. Lavender is the choice of all the flowers today. I am still yet to master macro pictures with this camera but these are ok. Oh how I wish I didn't drop my other point and shoot camera because it was really good for close-up pictures. Oh well.

Thanks for visiting today.
Tracy

How lovely of you to join in with us, thank you. Chooky is very pretty. The Jasmine is beautiful to look at, but i can't breathe within two blocks of it. Tough on me, because so many Adelaide suburbs have lots of it.

The spring garden is always a joy. So nice to have a little side kick to eat the grubs. She is rather cute.

Greetings Tracy! I've enjoyed seeing the jasmine, lavender and the bees. Chooky is a good name for your hen and must be a friendly companion as you work in the garden. Wishing you a very good week ahead.
