@Acetaker it's 10:10 here and soooo cold. The chickens were just screaming like crazy, sounding like they were dying! So I bundle up, run out there, and they all just wanna be held, they're cold lol! So I had to dig out a heat lamp, get that rigged up - its SOOOO cold out there! How do we do this each year lol!? I can not deal!

It is beautiful Chris! It is cold out here with an earlier nonsticking snow. We had a freeze last night. I made sure the shelter was still full of straw for my feral cat- Hunter (He won't come inside). He ran back afterwards to make sure I didnt do anything to it!!! I won't be doing anything outside this winter. Brrr❄ @Acetaker. @pretty_paws_29

I know @pretty_paws_29 those chicken were a cusing u for letting them get a chill..lol! I'm so glad I don't have to do it...I can't stand to get cold anymore. @kimguy I had a cat like that when I lived in Tennessee. She was a helluin ..lol!!

Hunter is a good boy. He lays in the front yard or in the driveway. He runs under the neighbors deck to hide, if needed. It is definitely his territory, he will not let another cat in his area. In the summer he loves to cool himself under the big hostas. @Acetaker

@kimguy @Acetaker My lily-cat is like that. She is a HUGE maine coon mix, and she owns the yard, the fields, the stream, and everything in between lol. I regularly walk out to her eating a squirrel or bird - yuck! But I love her to death, and she believes she is a lioness lol!

This line bouquet of #coneflowers are growing in a bed that has just a few leftovers from summer. I hate to see these go to the cold. #blackeyedsusan #rudbeckia #yellowflowers

Sorry that the storms ruined your wildflower beds. I love coneflowers. Purple the most of course. I have lost many of my mom's wildflowers due to not being able to care for the beds. I too say there is always next year. Let's hope it's good for us both.🤗

A new color #cornflower has popped up in the #wildflower bed. I left this and a couple other plants to go with seeds I scattered.

Yep,I've gottem to..wish they would find another home. This is just the beginning of the flower starting to open. I'll try to take another shot as it begins to open more if the rain stops long enough @terrimclaughlin

The wet ground is always what holds me back too. I live on low land and after a good rain I have to give it a day or the ground is positively sqiushy

That's part of why all my plants go in pots right now. Really having to pay attention to shade and wet ground before I in-ground something

I'm going to hope for it to survive this rain etc we're having and I'm sure it will bloom fully where I don't get to see it do so...I love that process😆 @cyndi
