I Didn't Know That

chickens could growl.

confederate jasmine March 31, 2014

The other day I decided Confederate Jasmine would be nice to look at from my breakfast room window. Off to the nursery I went to select my future view.  At home, I positioned a trellis on the fence that borders my neighbor's chicken house. I hammered and hammered and hammered.

I heard a guttural warning from the other side of the fence. Apparently one of the Rhode Island Reds had a problem with the racket. Hopefully she'll forgive me in a few months when the sweet scent is drifting in the air. 

By the way, in case you didn't know, Cathy Bonnell is the winner of the 100 dollar gift certificate to The Book Carriage.  Now that's something to crow about!
