Debbie over at Debbiedoos is having a pet party, and I thought I'd join in. You all met our baby girl, Socks, back when Debbie held her first pet party. Besides Socks, I don't really have any other pets to introduce you to other than our fish that just won't die. Outside our house, though we do have some new friends.
Do you see her? Hiding behind the flowers?
I put this little basket filled with silk blooms outside to dress up our front door area a couple of weeks ago for Easter. It's still cold here, and nothing's blooming yet, so I thought a little Spring color by the door would be nice.
Even with the constant comings and goings through that front door, she felt like this was the perfect spot to start a family. 5 perfect little eggs.
She's become accustomed to the front door opening, and will only fly off now when the storm door is opened(it's a bit noisy.) Does anyone know if finches come back every year? Our robins do. Each year they come back and lay eggs in this nest.
It's still a bit cold for them, so they haven't arrived yet. We definitely consider our robins pets as they've been coming back for the last 8 yrs. Socks, on the other hand, would love to call them dinner. She spends hours in the garden window watching them.
Thanks for popping in and checking out our unconventional "pets."
