"Life isn't long enough to do all you could accomplish. And what a privilege even to be alive. In spite of all the pollutions and horrors, how beautiful this world is.
Supposing you only saw the stars once every year. Think what you would think. The wonder of it!"--Tasha Tudor

Squatters' Rights

On my little porch there hangs a new fuschia plant. I normally check any potted or container plants for watering every few days when the weather is cool, more in the hot summer. I've noticed over the past couple of days that as I've come in or out, there are little birds that seem to fly over my head. It was getting a little Hitchcock-esque; but I figured that maybe there was a nest nearby. Little did I know that the nest was being created in my fuschia plant! I took the plant down to pull the dead bits off and to water it. Of course the birds flew out of the porch and gave me 'what for' while the plant was being tended to. As soon as I put my hand in to start cleaning it up I saw this nest! I don't know how well my fuschia plant will fare after this, but I hope the little birds will hatch. Look closely and you will see all of the Corgi fur they have picked up to fluff their nest. Smart birds came to the right house, eh? -CS ^..^
