The Doves Have Returned

Perhaps some of you remember that last year I posted a Momma Dove nesting in one of my hanging planters.  She had returned from the year before.  I had not noticed her until the Spring had warmed up some.  But two weekends ago, while I went out to my car, I heard her cooing and knew she had returned.  So, every day after work for the past 2 weeks, when I returned home, I could hear her saying hello or calling to her mate.

Last weekend I was sitting at my desk, sewing on a baby quilt for quite some time and happened to look out the window to my left, and there they were, Mom & Dad sitting on my water garden pot, watching me.  What a pleasant surprise!  I will look forward to seeing them raise more children in my hanging pot this summer.  This is the 3rd year in a row that they have returned to my backyard.
