A Surprise!

So, I've been growing strawberries from a hanging planter on my back patio. I've been checking them everyday because I've never grown them before, and I'm so excited! I went out yesterday and saw this weird, green netting sticking out of the planter, so I started tugging on it. This bird flew out of the planter, I have no idea how I didn't notice it! So, I climbed up on a chair and there was a little nest in my planter with one egg. So cute! So, my strawberry plants are probably done for, but I'll take watching a baby bird hatch over that! Here's the mom, she came back!

My knitting update: I am now still working on the front left of my Flicca sweater. It's slowly coming along!

It's a dove. How wonderful to have such a lovely resident.

Lovely photo, and yes, I'd say goodbye to the strawberry plants. The doves will come back just about every year. Heehee. How about a strawberry pot?
