About a month ago, 2 little wrens took up residence in a birdhouse that
I had put up for decoration on my porch. They brought sticks and twigs
and leaves to create a nest inside. About a week ago, I heard the small
peeps of the newest members of the family.
This morning, I watched the new parents take turns bringing food to the nest.
In they would go with some food and then come out again with what looked
like a piece of egg shell. I assume they were trying to clean up the nest while
the babies were distracted by the food. It reminded me of when my boys were
little and I wanted to wash their favorite blankets. I needed to distract them in
order to get the blankets to wash.
A hummingbird made its way from a pot filled with geraniums to a hanging planter
It was a morning of small joys.
