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.
