Typically...this time of year I'm hosing down the front porch floor, laying down my outdoor carpet and then putting my rocking chairs, table and lamp out.
This year I have to be a little patient.  
We have a visitor. 

When she hear's me coming to the front porch...she's on her way!

She doesn't go to far away from her nest. 
She's always watching and waiting for me to leave so she can get back to her business. 
Doesn't she look beautiful and peaceful up there?

I've managed to get a few things out though.
I bought this pretty metal mesh door basket and added some flowers and twigs to it.
The flowers are fake of course.

I added real geraniums to these pretty clay pots that were made in Germany.  
 I hope she lays those little eggs soon. 
I'm itching to do more.

I would love watching that mama bird and her babies when they come. We had a mama on our back porch for the last few summers. So far she's not back...I'm hoping. :)

what a wonderful blessing to have this sweet bird visit. I've had my won yardwork curtailed from time to time due to nesting birds but it's always worth it! They provide countless hours of entertainment :)

Your photo's of the mother bird were precious! What a great time of year this is..
Amy, you are right. Our treasures DO have memories...and when I find something precious at a garage sale..and give it a good home...I feel good about that!
