On our front porch, we have a plant. This plant was given to me 30 years ago, the day after I married my Husband, by my Mom. We were leaving to move to a little town in Northern Iowa. Charles City, Iowa.
When we moved to California in February, we were worried that they wouldn't let us bring it into the state because they have road check points to make sure you don't bring in any fresh fruit or vegetables. I have had this plant as long as I have been Married so it is a part of our family.
A couple of weeks ago, every time we would walk out the front door, a bird would fly off of the porch. It took a few days to realize that a bird had built a nest in the plant. I think it had 3 pretty little blue eggs in it. I tried not to disturb them too much.
They hatched sometime late Saturday or early Sunday morning. They are so cute and fuzzy. It is cold here in the morning so she has her work cut out for her. I believe they are either House Finches or Purple Finches. It is really hard to see how many are in there because you can't tell where one ends and the other one begins.
