Spring Is Here Early

Here on California’s Central Coast, we don’t usually get into spring until the end of March, but for the second day in a row, I accidentally flushed a mourning dove out of the Carolina jessamine vine growing on our gazebo.  I checked, and sure enough, she’s sitting on a nest already!

So, I guess I’m not going to be able to get in there and trim off the frost damaged leaves until the babies leave the nest. Hopefully, they only have one batch a year. Last year we had a quail nest in a potted plant right next to our front door and had to use the back door exclusively for weeks so as not to disturb the birdies.
And I think it might have been very windy last night…

The goldfish seemed to be saying, “What the heck is THAT!?” Well, at least the ones who aren’t begging for me to feed them. 🙂
