Starting of new things in the garden...

Standing inside my living room I looked out to see one of my lovely parent birds singing a song of love from on top of the bird feeder hook...

The caterpillar I shared last week is now sleeping...I picked the branch of dill it was on and now have it safely in a vase in my kitchen...I so hope Lil Sara will get to see the butterfly that will emerge..

The flowers around and inside the suitcase are blooming...

Oh boy now both parents are outside my window making lots of noise...

This is the view of my faux stag horn and basket from inside my living room...

Peek-a-boo...can you see the baby bird peeking out of the faux greenery...

Oh boy...now the baby is on top of the basket...Parents are very excited now...Fortunately he did return inside to the nest...Not quiet ready to leave this day (Monday)...

However he was making much racket again this morning and by the time we got home from town he was gone...Just the smaller baby bird left in the nest now...I do hope mommy and daddy continue to return and feed this one until it is ready to follow it's larger sibling out in the world.

Blessings Kelsie

Hi Kelsie
I get the butterfly caterpillars but have yet to find a chrysalis; if I do, bringing it inside is a great idea.
Have a great weekend.
