The four chickens spend more and more time all together. In the morning they gather on the back porch. The chicks have learned to follow Brown Hen to check out the leftover cat food. Now I pick it up before they get there, but it’s an old habit.
Many of the flowers are dying back, but the dahlia’s (the red flowers in this picture) are in full bloom. This morning Minnie was sunning herself, but she and Flo find the coolest places as the day warms up, moving as the shadows do.
