Mr. Pumpkin And His Chicks

I took these photos yesterday.
We were gone for the day today.

The scarecrow needed a new head
and we had an artificial pumpkin
I thought they should go together.

I let the chickens in the garden somedays
to keep Mr. Pumpkin company,
but mostly to eat bugs.

The hens are happy to get scratch
after not having any for a week.
They have almost finished the pumpkin.

The family gathered for Dolores church service.
It was good to see everyone, but sad.
My sister and daughter
are staying for the weekend.
One more service
to come
on Monday.
