I DID GOOD...

So another phase of the garden cottage was completed today thanks in large part to Mr. Sweet Pea. He's one handy guy...

I had taken a lunch break while he went to meet his boss to get the plans for a job he's off to do later today, and had gone back out to the cottage to wait for him to return. I am thrilled beyond words to report that sitting on the egg in the nest that I rescued yesterday was a beautiful dove!

She came back! The baby has a chance! The power of motherly love at work.

She flew away but I'm hoping now that the activity has ceased she will come back. I'll be keeping a watchful eye out for her.

Thanks for all your warm thoughts on the previous post about the egg and the nest. So many kind people in bloglandia...

And because some of you are wondering when you can see the finished cottage, here's a teeny peek...

This is the reflection from an old accordian mirror that I hung inside the cottage...





Soon, I promise...

Don't keep us waiting too long. You have no idea how much I enjoy your decorating and I'm sure this is going to be amazing.

Take care,

I'm so glad she came back, although it could be him. I think I've read that mama and daddy both sit on the eggs. Hopefully you'll be seeing a baby bird soon!

I have a sad encounter with eggs or baby birds every year....

i hate windy spring nights... all i can think of is a nest falling from a tree...

today there are 2 baby birds hopping around the yard. they cant fly but fell out of the nest already. I've been worrying about them all day.
It's hard to have a soft spot for lil creatures

Like everyone else, I can't wait to see the garden cottage! Even the words "garden cottage" put me under a spell! I know yours will be extra "charming"!

June said...

Oh I am so happy to hear that momma has come back and reclaimed the egg. I love doves, they have to be the gentlest of birds.
I cannot wait to see the garden cottage...hopefully we can see it soon. I already love it just with the little peek you gave us.
hugs
