Happily Ever After

Hello everyone,

Today I want to share with you the life cycle of the birds that nested in the wreath of our cottage .  Do you remember this photo? You can see it here .

From these beautiful eggs came five cute little birds.

Three out, two more to come...

They hatched.

I'm sorry for the messy home. :(

Can you see them?
They are so big now!

Here's a closed up.

This cute little bird was the last one to leave the nest.
All grown up and ready to fly!

A bird does not sing because it has an
answer. It sings because it has a song.
~ Chinese Proverb


Spring, the sweet Spring, is the year's pleasant
king; cold doth not sting, the pretty birds do
sing, Cukoo, jug-jug, pu-we, to-witta-woo!

Walk on a rainbow trail; walk on a trail
of song, and all about you will be beauty.
There is a way out of every dark mist,
over a rainbow trail.

God loved the birds and invented trees.
Man loved the birds and invented cages .

 Won't you come into the garden?
I would like my roses to see you.

  10. Oh Wendy, these roses are beautiful! I just recently put that quote on our blog, "Won't you come into my garden." I love it. How wonderful it must have been to see the little birds being born. I just saw my most beloved bird at the park today - the hummingbird. Your roses made me happy today, and it's just what I needed. That last picture is amazing.
