Well I think despite the recent crazy weather, Spring has officially arrived! Here in our little Northern Arizona Mountain town of Flagstaff , Arizona along with my first sunburn of the season came this…..a bird nest with 4 tiny eggs. It is hanging high in a large glass jar where we once had a candle in a wooden box out on our patio. 🙂 Mama bird now has a clear view of the mountains in her glass condo out of the wind. We had been working in the garden all day with the rototiller going, etc. yet here mama bird sits a top her eggs.
The garden is ready for plants now that the soil is all mixed with the organic matter provided by our beloved chickens ( chicken poop, straw added to some organic soil bought from HOME DEPOT ).
