Scenes from the winter homestead

Just two pictures today, totally random and not connected.

First, here's one that would be great for a 'caption this photo' contest. Ever feel like you can't fit in? Trying to make yourself smaller so as not to draw attention to yourself? This egg is in the same boat. Or should I say, ill-fitting egg crate.

Second, a glimpse into our sun room, aka lemon farm. OK, it's just one tree but those 4 lemons are home grown, flower to fruit. Turns out that hand-pollinating is key. And there are key limes in the same pot, the first set of which we just got to set fruit, keep your fingers crossed. This orchid is the first of its kind that I have gotten to re-bloom for me. Oh cheerful sight!

  1. Woh, poor chicken, or rather, relieved chicken!
    I've not had one of those yet from our pullets. Speaking of which, I'd better go take advantage of the dry weather to go clean the coop.
