To weave a strong, soft nest

An elderly friend moving into assisted living last year gave me her old amaryllis bulb that had come covered in decorative dried moss, telling me I’d be able to get it to bloom again. I can only imagine how it was for her to give up her garden and I hope to bring her flowers from it to brighten up her new place.

I left the moss in the pot with an eye towards spring.

It has been discovered, as I knew it would be. And so the Chestnut-Backed chickadee announces it
 is nesting season as she builds a new home of her own.

oh yes — Spring is coming (said she hopefully as she shovels yet another snow storm out of the driveway!)

good to see your pictures of its pending arrival — gives me hope for its coming here in a colder climate!

And perhaps the photos will bring joy as well as the bird obviously appreciates her new home.
