Yesterday the front porch was littered with lots of debris. I thought...here we go again. The purple finches are building a 2nd nest. They love to live behind our light fixture. Hubby is not too happy with them. They do make a mess, but I can clean it up. When we were sitting on the porch last night, the little mom and dad to be... flew back and forth building their home. There are lots of honey locust trees in our area. They pop up all over our yard. When we see them...we pull them out. This is the only plant material the finches are using this time. I told my hubby..."They are helping us...we don't have to bend over so much." They usually have a messy nest, but this one seems to be well made.
I was reading a blog this morning...Indyblogs...A nice green leaf:The big green leaf is coming. People are showing the often neglected color in the garden....green. So many colors this time of year...we sometimes forget how cool, calm and relaxing a walk in a green garden can be.
Well, I went out to take a picture of one of my huge hosta leaves, and flying past me, was the tiny finch. She almost told me, "Take a picture of my green nest." I decided right then and there....she made this little nest out of all the same plant material, had to search for it, helped clean up my yard....why not take the picture?
