Last week, I sent out a newsletter about backyard habitats.
Saturday, we found a bunny nibbling the grass in our yard. Andrew thinks he scrambled through the hole under one of our gates. My husband said that reminded him that he needs to fill the hole - ASAP.
Then yesterday, I found this little beauty in our yard.
I told Andrew to go get it and he refused. He has a thing about birds.
So I brought it in and showed him the little bits of cotton and string and duct tape that were woven in with the twigs. I even pointed out a little piece of ribbon that is exactly the same type of ribbon we use to wrap gifts.
I just thought it was so neat that a little bird brained animal could do such a thing. God is so awesome!
I shared that with Andrew and he said, "Um... Okay..." with absolutely no enthusiasm. So I told him we'd wait and look at the nest when Jazzy woke up from her nap.
Then James came home from work and warned the kids not to touch the nest or they could catch a disease. And I gave up. We're just not nature lovers.
I won't even "go there" and tell you about our butterfly garden. Okay, I guess I'll tell you, but it will have to wait until tomorrow.
