The 2016 Chicks

Baby Chicks @ Jocees Farm

Meet the new team for 2016. These little chicks are 1 week old.

Delilah is doing a great job with her first lot of chicks. She is a nice calm hen (unless you are threatening her babies), so the chicks should grow up nice and calm too.

The poser. There's one in every group isn't there?

This tree lives on Somes Island which is in the Wellington Harbour, New Zealand.

Looks like it's had a tough life battling against the wind.

Echinacea Flower

Echinacea @ Jocees Farm

Echinacea is a member of the daisy family and is sometimes called the Purple Coneflower.  They flower right through the summer months.

I bought this plant last year to see how it went here. It had a few flowers and did OK but this year it is putting a a great show.

Echinacea @ Jocees Farm

The name, Echinacea, was derived from a Greek word meaning 'hedgehog' due to the spiny looking central disk.

Sleeping Cat

From my cat Toby:

Sleeping Cat @ Jocees Farm

"It's mid summer here and it's hot, hot, hot.
So i must sleep, sleep, sleep."

In this heat he is an expert sleeper, he doesn't wake up until the end of the day, and then he's off for the night.
