We are now awaiting the arrival of our new little babies...our sweet bluebirds of happiness have a little clutch of eggs. They are the tiniest, sweetest little things...just a little bit bigger than a jelly bean. We saw momma fly away from the birdhouse the other night and took the opportunity to check on her family. The prospect of new little babies is almost more than Avery can handle, the real momma of all the backyard birds around here. We checked with a local naturalist and did some reading online before we opened the box, and we were assured that it was not harmful to check on them from time to time to make sure things were progressing well.
And these are one of my other personal favorite backyard visitors....the goldfinches. I think they are one of the most beautiful birds ever. I am even overtaken and obsessed with a particular fabric with, what else, goldfinches on it. I have made several yards my own over multiple trips to the fabric store....perhaps there will be a sighting of that soon. Until then, enjoy our bluebirds of happinness and goldfinches, we do...
My name is Leslie. I live in Virginia. I am a wife to Chris, a super husband/great daddy/army officer/PhD candidate. I am a mother to three very exciting kids, Avery and Mitchell, ages 13 and 10 and "baby" Delilah who is 5. I am a little crafty. I love fabric, quilting and I love my friends and family. I hope here I can keep up with all of you that are so very far away.
