A Home in the Holly Tree

A mockingbird has been diligently building a nest in the holly tree in our front flower bed. At first I thought it was going to be mighty uncomfortable, even for a bird. Lots of twigs and pointy sticks. Today I decided to take a quick picture, and what to my surprise, the nest has been transformed into a pretty cushy pad. It seems my dusty miller in the back yard has been appropriated to line the new nursery. I must say, they picked a nice soft plant to do the finishing touches. I wonder when we can expect eggs?

Birds are nothing if not resourceful, eh? Glad they made good use of your dusty miller! It looks like your surprise Easter snow is gone--I am sure you are ready for some warmer weather. Was surprised that the folks had snow in TX, too.
