Wordless/Wordful Wednesday - Greenhouse Nesting

and

Together!

You know the drill...since I'm rarely wordless, I like to combine Wordless Wednesday with Wordful Wednesday - that way I can be lazy efficient and cover both bases with one easy post! ;)

Saturday was a beautiful sunny day - a perfect day to get some stuff done in the yard. I built a greenhouse in the back 40 on our property a couple of years ago, and thought I'd head out there to fix it and get it ready for transferring some of the seedlings I have started in the house, as well as get some new ones started. After the wacky winter we had, a few wind storms had dislodged a some of the panels so I needed to reattach them and get the shelving set back up again. Princess Nagger was taking advantage of the nice weather to run around out back and play on the rope swing, so I had to get a shot before I got too close, or she'd try to hide from the camera:

When I got back to the greenhouse, the first thing I noticed is hubby had tossed a set of my shelving inside the greenhouse upside down...but what really caught my eye was this:
So my greenhouse antics are on hold until the dove vacates her cozy nest...I'll be keeping a close eye on it so I can get some great hatching or hatched pictures...wonder how long it will be before I can fix and use my greenhouse?

Who is that hot chick in your sassy site of the day widget????

Every year birds build their nests in my wreath on my front door. We decided to move the wreath this year because we didn't want to get nailed by the bird eggs every time we go in and out. It's quite the site to watch them build their nests from the windows on my door.

Enjoy! Two years in a row we had cardinals build a nest right outside of our windows. We got to watch them build the nest, then we got to count the eggs and see the babies. We even got to see one baby "fly the coop!"

Look at all that green. I'm in NM and we don't see all that green grass out here. I love it! I'm sorry you have to wait for the dove to leave. I can't wait to see pics of your plants once you get to use your green house. :)
