Official Sign of Spring


They're back !
It's nesting time.

Every spring my little house finches scout out the best places
on my porch .. . . and inevitably choose the top of one
of the light fixtures.
For days they fly about and chirpily discuss the attributes of
the various locations. Today they started the process of
bringing in the twigs and string and (their favorite ingredient)
random bits of silky white dog fur.

And the winner is : The light near the porch swing !

This is more excitement than I can bear.
I simply must recline on the chaise with a
lemonade and a cranberry almond scone.


Here's to a thrilling weekend at your house .. . . .

Those scones sound so yummy! So is the nesting image! Yes, while we were up in the wilderness area earlier this week, everywhere we went we were graced with the songs and activities of all the birds.
