The Mother Of All Mothers Gives Gifts Too!!

 
Since it is Mother's day weekend I thought I would share with you what MOTHER NATURE has been up to at our house.

See this planter.....

This is on our homes front porch! Now if you look very very closely you can see this.....


The start of a perfect little birds nest made by these two......

House finch!

They took about 3 days to build the nest, first the sides, then the bottom, then they added some soft fluff. Next came......

Awwww our very first little birds nest and egg in our new home. What a gift from Mother Nature!!

For the next 4 days....

Day 2 


Day 3



Day 4



Day 5

She is done laying her brood and now she will sit on them for 11-12 days and then we will get to see some little birds. We are so happy and excited about this gift from Mother Nature!!!

We also had another surprise from Mother Nature this week....

The bloom is 8 1/2 in. in diameter. I measured it because I could not believe how large they are...


 Mother Nature sure does a nice job doesn't she!?

Since we are celebrating Mother's day on Sunday I would like to wish you all a very happy Mothers Day!!

So amazing what birds do to make those wonderful nests...the architects of Mother Nature!...Love the Amaryllis!... I remember many years ago placing an Amaryllis that had bloomed out under my potting bench and totally forgot about it...to my surprise I discovered a stalk coming out of the pot and it re-bloomed...and I totally neglected it...my kind of gardening!
