A visit with an old friend

Back in April of 2012, I was visited by TC - I was only the 3rd artist to participate in the Traveling Chicken blog.

Today, August of 2017 - 5 years later and after many, many artists have been visited, TC has once again arrived at my doorstep. Along with Señor Gato & momma hen and chicks! They were so happy to pop out of their travel container & stretch! Straight out onto the lawn they went & under the Hydrangea bush of my neighbor! Oh boy, I had to quick head over to gather them up!


Next they found their way into my flower boxes. Oh how TC loves flowers, the brighter the color the better! I love to plant in containers and have quite a few scattered around. I think both Señor Azul and TC must have inspected every single one!


One of TC's favorite is my Coleus plant - she just loved all the colors in the leaves.


Senor Azul was fond of the salmon color impatients.


Suddenly momma hen started clucking rather loudly & Señor Azul & TC quickly ran to her side to see what was wrong. "Nothing wrong" she clucked, "I've made a couple of new friends here, the Turtle twins!

The chatter rose quickly as they introduced themselves to each other. And there was much ado about flowers, and plants, and gardening. After a bit, the chicks joined me indoors. It was then that TC asked if I would paint her again, only different than the last time, this time she wanted something special. I asked why special, she only clucked and smiled at me. "Ok, ok, keep your little secret -- for now," I said.

"All in due time" TC replied, then scampered off to talk with my parakeet "Blue."
