|Isn't she beautiful!!|
Now still on the subject of birds but totally different from the doves; we have a pair of purple finches. They sing and flit around and are almost never still, like they had one too many energy drinks; but they are adorable. We have 4 hanging flower baskets around the awning on our front porch, but one of them is more than a flower. When I bought the hanging basket there seems to have been some misrepresentation on the part of the store. They said it was a flower, which it is; but they failed to divulge that it is also a bird house. Saw the Mama finch squeezing down in the flower, could not believe there was room for her, let alone a nest; but she wouldn't stop. Needed to water the flower so I carefully took it down to make sure I didn't "water" the nest. Sure enough she has the most perfect little feather bowl down in that plant that you have ever seen and a stash of greens beside it. Mom and Dad fly in and out; he keeps watch while she builds the nest, then they are gone again. Not sure how to keep the flower alive and not disturb the nest; suggestions welcome. Does this look like a bird house to you? :)

Tomorrow I'll be back to jewelry but I've been enjoying the birds too much not to share. I hope you are having a wonderful day and that something sweet like a dove and cute like a finch touches your heart.
