With spring arriving so early, the birds are busy calling for mates and collecting material to build nests. These two mourning doves started out sitting on top of an arbour and moved to the transom over our front door. The courtship ritual carried on for a couple of days and then I saw the Mrs. (bottom left) pulling at stems of a clematis that must have looked perfect for her nest. The mother and baby on the right are in a basket at my daughter's house that still had last summer's spent annuals in it.
We enjoy all the birds on our certified wildlife habitat property and I have many faux birds inside to honour these feathered friends.
Welcome to tea my friends as we join Sandi at Rose Chintz Cottage for her Spring Tea. I'm celebrating spring with the birds and the occasion calls for my daffodil tablecloth.
I really like the little birdie lemon wedge squeezer. The juice comes out of the holes in the beak.
I tried a new recipe for a sweet this week.
Many of the faux birds are joining us for tea.
There is a creamer, salt and pepper set, the teapot bird feeder in the background and an adorable little white bird with pink ribbon that was a gift from DH.
