Spring snapshots

Some old containers re-purposed as nesting boxes - works really well! These eggs are plastic, by the way - to encourage laying/brooding in the right places.

Our very handsome Black Brahma roo.

The first broody of the season. Doesn't she look like she might peck the camera any moment?

A patch of mint, looking very fresh after the spring rains.

Oops! No pictures. However, I've looked a broody hen in the face a number of times, so I can "Fill in the blanks on THAT one!

I, too, could not see the pictures in this post.

On a totally unrelated note: Recently I have been seeing solicitations on television here in the U.S. (I live in South Carolina) for money to provide food for people in Israel who are starving. They show pictures of people being given boxes of food. Do you think this is a legitimate need? I know there are poor people everywhere but often we see things on-line and on television that are not truthful. I would appreciate your thoughts.

Lady Anne and Becka, I have no idea why you can't see the photos, I see them when I open the blog... will try to figure this out.

Becka, there are plenty of charity organizations here in Israel and I don't know anybody who is starving. I think the shots you saw were overplayed. Of course there are poor people, and we support charity organizations as well, but Israel isn't a Third World country and our social security is generally pretty good. There are of course some exceptions of people in truly heartbreaking situations. But I doubt those make it to publicity.
