These cactus flowers that last so fleetingly, remind me why I keep these plants year after year.
This bird is called Cassidy. The neighbours children had thought she was a boy, and tried breeding with their other bird April, to no avail. When they brought her over the road, it was only a matter of 2 weeks and she was busily sitting on eggs.
I have poppy heads everywhere
. . . and in Avairy No. 2 this little bird is sitting for a second time after already raising 2 lovely babies. The string that is hanging from this nest, linked up to another nest, and I'm sure it was a telephone line, so the birds could keep in touch while patiently sitting on their tiny eggs.
Beautiful deep red November Lillies
Cassidy again, and the neighbourhood children kept visiting, very excited at the prospect of babies.
Love In The Mist
One of my absolute favourites!
Here are the parents. They are dedicated indeed. Dad is a wonderful singer and whenever Cassidy needs a bath, or a break, he sits on the eggs and keeps them warm.
Can you see 2 little beaks below? They are calling "Mum -MUM! ..." I think she is feeding the 3rd one that is in the nest
Cassidy has been rewarded for her patience. There are 2 teeny tiny beaks there. Can you see them?
It has been a VERY EXCITING Springtime in my garden.
