Today, my neighbor Pam brought over a "Coop Warming" gift. It is a watercolor of some Hollyhocks in bloom. She said it had been in her garage and when she saw it she knew it belonged in my coop. So... I mounted it on the inside of the entrance gate to the chicken yard. Here are some photos. Here with the gate open Here with the gate shut and here is a close up of the watercolor, it is of Hollyhocks in bloom. I thought this photo was neat, notice there is lattice around the Hollyhocks, and see the refection of the lattice in the glass of the photo. Today I also mounted the word "Eggs" above the nest box. I had to do a bit of modification on the letters to get them to fit in the space The "S" had to be a bit tipped, but I think it looks ok, being not quite straight.. Well off to bed now. I spend most of the evening cleaning up a "Hazmat" problem in the kitchen, I accidently broke the florescent tube over the sink! So... in case any of you didn't know, they contain Mercury. And it is not good to be breathing and touching Mercury. It is all cleaned up now!!
