Chickens in my Garden

 I had the pleasure to meet up with some bloggers on Sunday and Frogdancer said to me: "Why don't you post a chicken?"
 So here are the Chickens in my Garden.  Since my brush with Salmonella the year before last - I have had trouble eating eggs, and looking at live chickens.  But I still like them in my garden and I've found these alternatives.

 For Christmas I got given 2 chickens for a mission somewhere overseas, so I put them in my chicken yard...but they are not so good at keeping down the weeds.
 This is a new rose someone gave me.  It's funny, as I'd never have chosen one like this myself, but it's actually been giving me quite a lot of pleasure.  It's quite remarkable and I'm growing quite fond of it.
 This is Hannah Gordon.  It was a pot luck rose for $5 at the nursery a few years back and I've been able to identify it through books and looking at the nurseries.
 I'm getting my Liberty on, in the sewing room.
 Teeny tiny log cabins.  They have to be small as the fabric is SO expensive, but beautiful.

I debate myself if the chickens are worth the trouble and money, but I am still enjoying their antics, so for me they are. I didn't realize the salmonella was from your eggs. That's not fun. I'm so sorry.

I am curious about the books in the tree. What is that all about?
