Nesting Instincts

"I came to build the Bird's nest,
and sow the Early seed."
- Emily Dickinson

It's finally looking like Spring will make an long awaited appearance in the Pacific Northwest - for reals!

We've been watching as the bird's start to build their nests in earnest. Every one of them that flits by is on a mission, with a wisp of something in it's beak.

I'll be out in the garden, getting it ready for the starts we've been planting indoors these past few weeks. Really excited about the herbs especially this year and we're making a small round planter to fill up with lots of different varieties, as well as flowers.

Here's a twiggy little nest I made for a
gardening gift basket tag.

Simple and easy!
