Someplace in Thyme

I have been creating since I was a little girl. I am happy to say that having my own website has opened up a whole new world for me. Trying new mediums is a joy and sometimes a real eye opener. I sell what I create on etsy and my website, someplaceinthyme. If you have questions,please email me at cpeterson72@q.com. I welcome new blog friends and am honored if you find my little piece of heaven interesting enough to follow.

Have you ever wondered if a bird can think? Well, I believe that they can not. For if they could, surely they would never build a nest in the upper lleft corner of a trellis.
I have always thought that the male bird built the nest and waited for the female to approve. I know that there is a type of bird that this is true, but I don't think it's true for all. Whomever built this little nest should have been sent packing!!
Maybe I have no idea what I am talking about, and this sweet home will withstand the rearing of babies without any problems....time will tell.

The day was overcast when I went out to replace my hummer feeded and something flew out, scared me half to death!!

After a good long sneek peek, this is what I found. A tail feather, straight up in the air........:)

A cute dove, and I wish her all the luck in the world with her nest and her little ones to be.
To be continued....

Doves will build their nests in the craziest places. We had a pair for several years build their nest in a pine tree, just five feet off the ground. Another built their nest under our patio cover. All I can think is they feel we humans are protecting their eggs and babies when they are away.

blessings, jilly

Well I have had doves built nest here and they don't always pick the best places. I always leave food close to the nest so they don't have to go far looking for it. The crows are always looking for the babies for their dinner. Good luck...Lu
