I never know what I have to walk around when I go out on the deck these days.  Last year a neighbor gave the Sisters two peacock chicks.  They are now half grown (takes three years for them to mature) and they are very much at home around here.  I hear they are quite beautiful to the human eye and our guests say they are uplifted by their grace as well as by their fidelity to each other.  You should hear them cry out when they get separated!

Sister Karen had an extra job this summer because of the peacocks.  You get the idea from the pictures.
