A windy, rainy day is bringing down many leaves and sweet treasures from
the boughs above. This lovely little nest with spotted eggs still inside
was laying on the ground this morning.
As the leaves disappear only to leave a bleak and barren landscape behind, I can't help but view this little nest and eggs as a departing gift of nature. A sweet and precious reminder that spring will come again in due time.
