Spring Chicken

We found Spring!

In Riggins, spring is in the air. The new grass is bright green, flowers are blooming, there’s a new batch of red calves in the pasture, and we got to visit Fiddle Creek Fruit Stand for chicks!

If you ever find yourself driving North of Riggins on highway 95, near Lucile, you have to stop at the Fiddle Creek Fruit Stand. It feels like stepping back in time. The shelves are full of interesting merchandise like jam, pickles, honey, nuts, feed, and books about the local history. We passed by a pile of colorful fresh eggs on our way to see the chicks in a room behind the counter. The folks that run Fiddle Creek are friendly and helpful, eager to show you what’s new and help you find what you need.

Thank goodness we can visit Riggins when we need a little spring and sunshine. Alice is an old pro. She’s always ready to help with the chores, especially feeding the cows and chickens, and collecting eggs.

She was so excited to help pick out chicks. Once they were carefully transported home and settled into their temporary home, Alice laid down to watch, “all the cuteness.” HipstamaticPhoto-512069323.707439

Cuteness indeed.

Here are videos of the calves and the chicks (don’t mind the commentary, hard to get vid without some extra chatter ;))

    Thank you Audrey.   Love your pictures and updates.   Spring is here also.    The wildflowers will and are beautiful this year with all the rain we have had.     I’m going to a chocolate tea tomorrow.    This PEO group has this every few years.   All the chocolate is to die for.   I’ll eat some for all of you.   Think of all of you often and am so grateful for all of you.
