the mother-to-be

this is the little house wren that is nesting back in my potting shed. I hadn't noticed her flying in and out for awhile and just figured she had picked a different spot.

I was potting up some dahlias that it's too early to put in the ground this afternoon and dropped a pot on the floor. When I bent over to pick it up I happened to be looking toward the nest opening and was startled to see this little face staring back at me! I quickly and quietly finished what I was doing and then went to find Larry to have him put a latch on the door so that the cats can't push the door open.

Mrs. Wren comes and goes through a back window and the transom above the door.

While Larry installed the latch, I took a quick couple of pictures!

This will be GREAT! I'll be eye level with the babies and will hopefully be able to get some cool shots! 8-))

I had a wonderful day with my family and got to spend a little time in the garden, but now I'm beat!

I'll catch up with everyone tomorrow. Just wanted to share this special little treat!

Hope you all had a wonderful Easter!
