Recently, I bought a hanging basket containing a geranium plant for my patio. It hadn't been up more than a day or two before I noticed a beautiful little bird couple flying in and out of it, bearing twigs and stuff. I was pretty sure they were building a nest. I'm not sure what kind of birds they are, though I'm told they're most likely purple finches. Anyway, I wanted to take a peek Saturday to see if there were any eggs, so when Mama Bird was away, I carefully lowered the basket. I was expecting to see two or three eggs but, lo and behold, there were six. They're tiny, marble-sized blue eggs. I'm not sure how long bird gestation takes, but I would think there will be six little baby birds chirping on my patio very soon.
I hope you guys had a great weekend, and I wish you a Happy Monday.
