Every year the same Wren and I go round and round....I hang a planter on the front porch or place a plant in a pot which has been sitting empty all winter and she suddenly decides it's a great place to build a nest. Then again, maybe by now she thinks we're building partners.
Well, this year, someone beat her to it. All because I decided to go small first and just put in Spearmint, then fill in with other flowers later. After all, being right outside the front door it is in a pretty high traffic area. Plus Walter the Watch Mockingbird believes the porch is his...he likes to sing there in the morning while using the rails as his personal restroom facility. I really do think he believes we're his pets.
I found this Sunday morning.
Sure, there is a "ring" in effect. But not much effort. Hubby says it's probably the Dove which has suddenly taken a liking to our front porch...and they're lousy nest builders. I hear she may make another deposit...I'll keep you posted.
