Easter Eggs

We've been watching a pair of busy birds, maybe purple finches (??) construct this nest on our front porch over the past two weeks.  It is built on the top of a Christmas wreath (that I had neglected to take down and now I can't for obvious reasons).  Today it is Easter, and when I peeked into the nest this morning four little pale blue eggs had been laid.   They look just like the speckled malted milk candies I've eaten too much of this morning.


  1. Yes, and now I hope the neighborhood cats don't find it.
