Less than a week ago I received an e-mail from Janice telling me she had stumbled on my blog. She asked where I lived and as it turns we live just a short distance from each other. We met for lunch and discovered that we had a lot in common so today we got together at her home for a "craft and chat" day.
Note: I should have mentioned originally when I wrote this post that yes, Janice knits and spins.
Janice raises French angora rabbits. They are gorgeous animals. Once upon a time, I used to have rabbits so I really was thrilled to see them. Look at all that fiber on that animal!!!
Janice prepared a fantastic lunch accompanied by her husband's homemade bread. I think I was "spoiled" today.
Once upon a time, I also had a canary. Janice's canary is the most beautiful singer. Oh, it's been so many years since I have enjoyed being seranaded by a canary. Mine always sang when I was on the phone making the person on the other end very envious.
Not a good picture as there is a screen between myself and this feeder. Many, many chickadees were parading back and forth until I appeared in the window...dah!!! Black-capped chickadees are my home state of Maine's state bird.
An orchid on the windowsill. So beautiful!!
This mama will soon have babies. She was busy preparing a nest with hay while I was there. However, she will soon be pulling her hair out to use in her nest.
Another mama recently had babies.
And then there were the chickens!!!!
