A warm Hoosier Welcome

It has been a while since this Hoosier gal has posted anything. Am trying to get back in the groove . Will be posted sewing, decorating and crafting tips. I like frugality, using what you have in your present stash.

The baby birds have all hatched.   I try so hard not to use our front door often. Only twice a day
to get our newspaper in mornings and mail in afternoons.

The first egg had hatched by 10:30 a.m. on Saturday.   The second one hatched by 4:00 p.m. that
same day.

Since we don't get mail or newspaper on Sundays I opted to not open the main front door disturbing
mama bird.  This gave her an extra 24 hrs. on nest.

This morning I noticed all 4 babies, heads bobbing around, beaks in the air.

So, this will be the second group of Song Sparrows that the wreath on our front door has aided
in life.

I know that when the time comes for them to fly away, once again my heart will be heavy for a day, looking into the sky and wondering if it is them I see flitting across the house.

Have a beautiful Monday !
