Just a few days ago, DH called me out to the balcony, all excited.
A sparrow had shown up and was hopping amongst the pots! We were thrilled, and I was struck by the sad situation — imagine feeling happy about a sparrow, when we grew up with these feathered friends, poking and pecking around in our backyard, and building inconvenient nests in our house.
Not to be left behind, a pair of pigeons decided to make a hanging pot their nest, and we found one beautiful white egg during this morning’s investigation. I do hope we get to see the entire life cycle; it will such a fun experience for Lil D.
