I am just popping in with a quick survey of my blog readers regarding a little shin dig my good friend Elaine from Sunny Simple Life is considering. If you know Elaine, you know that she loves her beautiful family, her adorable home and garden and her little flock of chickens.
We met through blogging a couple of years ago and discovered that we live within a couple of miles of each other (I know small world, huh). She is the real deal. What you see and read is who she really is and I have truly been blessed by her friendship.
She approached me last month about co-hosting an afternoon of Chickens 101 in her backyard. She lives on an average size suburban lot but has managed to to incorporate an adorable chicken run and coop as well as plenty of fruit trees and vegetable beds into her landscape all the while keeping a family friendly, pretty yard to hang out in.
Here's my question...If you are local to the Southern California area, would you be interested in an event like this? The morning would include a Q & A with Elaine plus a tour of her gardens, a simple brunch and a craft taught by me.
She is going to pose the same question to her readers and we will decide at that point whether there is enough interest in the event to move forward.
I have toyed with the idea of backyard chickens for a few years now but have yet to take the leap. Who knows if something like this will make me jump in with both feet. Don't tell my husband or he might hide my car keys!
Leave me a yay or nay comment with your thoughts.
(These pretty raised bed planters are from the grounds of the Hotel Del Coronado. Be still my heart, I love them so!)
