Surprise! Again! Last year, in May, I had birds to nest and raise a family in my wreath. You may remember that story, as I followed them along the way with my posts. I had told myself to make sure I removed the wreath before bird nesting time, as I really didn't want to go through that again. We had to block off the front door so no one would disturb the birds and to keep anyone from being attacked by mama bird. After our birds flew away, I had a huge mess to clean up on the door.
Well, yesterday, I was leaving for work and I noticed birds flying around my current wreath. ( a heart shaped basket) I thought to myself that I had better get that wreath down tomorrow. Tomorrow is now today and when we checked this morning, I am TOO LATE..... the nest is complete with one little egg already inside. So, there goes my plans for my new Easter wreath that I planned to make this week. I cannot bring myself to disturb mother nature. We will, again, watch the birds develop from our front door this year. I did make myself a note, already, on next year's calendar....end of February: remove wreaths from doors! :o)
