The Nest

April 30, 2011
Catching a glimpse
It’s not only the girls at Tilly’s Nest that are having babies.  We’ve had a few house finches busy in our topiary by our garage.  Today I peered in and this is what I saw; three light blue eggs with brown speckles.  I was so touched by the nest’s tranquil beauty. 
Today, I am spending most of my time in the gardens preparing the beds as they wake from their Winter slumber.  I am also cleaning up around the outside of the coop and reseeding some of the lawn that the chickens enjoyed to death! 
This is my favorite time of the year.  Signs of life are everywhere.  Take time to enjoy life’s beautiful quiet moments.  You’ll find you are surrounded by them.

  1. You should start keeping some Japanese quail. They’re similar to chickens and produce eggs which you can eat and make great meals from – especially pickled ones! Also they are very friendly if raised correctly. I got my pair which were skittish at 6 weeks old but I handled them everyday and they became my favourite pets and I loved them so much that words cannot describe. I called them Mushroom and Meatball and even created a blog about them which is still going today. Sadly they passed away and I have heart ache from today when i think about them. I get teary even right now writing about them, they really were special to me!
