It's amazing how fast time can go by. Here it is, another year gone by since I've posted.

The weather is up and down this spring. Here it is April 23rd and the temps are supposed to go down to the 30's tonight. But a cool spring is better than no spring, so I'll take it! Smiling

The Eastern Phoebes come back every year to nest in the eaves of our front and back porch. Yes, two nests, one in the front and one in the back! Lol. This year they seemed to have forgotten how to make a nest! They were slinging mud everywhere and dotting it across the trim before finally making a really tall nest! Hilarious!

I think maybe the same birds come back each year to nest. They are couples and both help in building the nest. Once the chicks hatch, it's so cute to watch the couple take turns bringing food.

Hi Patti, so nice to see you. Thanks for the nudge since I've pretty much abandoned my Cubit.

I'm looking forward to spring too! My hands are starting to itch, wanting to get in some dirt.
