Morning Surprise

The other morning, S. spotted this lovely surprise on the deck. It's one of those morning glories that I planted way back when ('Granpa Ott's', I believe). I had all but given up on them, and understandably so....take a look (those poor Ipomoeas):

The morning glories and moonflowers were pretty devastated (those entire plants were actually covered with leaves...only for about a week, but still. There was green there before, I promise). Turns out that chickens will eat just about anything green and growing. Hmmm. Mental note to fence out the plants on the deck next year--I suppose that's why they call it chicken wire. Keeps chickens in...and also keeps chickens out. :-)
