Miller Farm Friday – Strange Living Arrangements
By Guest Blogger Chicken Wrangler Sara
If you’re a regular reader of Miller Farm Friday, you know we have chickens in the coop and in the yard.
We have four daschunds in the house and sometimes in the yard.
We have bees and beehives in the yard.
This seems to be a very good year for lizards. We also have a family that lives on our front porch that drives the dachshunds crazy. The critters crawl along the windowsill taunting the poor dogs.
There is also a family living on the back porch – with the bees. And, when I say “with the bees,” I mean in the same house or, in this case, beehive.
I knew no one would believe me so I asked beekeeper Brian to take pictures.
Naturally seeing the lizards reminded me of a song – actually a book with a lizard song,
I read the book to my children when they were young. In the story, Lizard sings: “Zoli, zoli, zoli, rock is my home.”
Of course, in our house we now sing “Zoli, zoli, zoli beehive is my home.”
I’m not sure I would choose to live in a beehive. I think I’ll stick to living in my zoo.
