Surprise!

Does this look like a maternity ward to you? Just a lovely fernleaf bleeding heart.

A chipping sparrow has decided to build a teeny weeny nest in the base of the plant. Now the trick is to keep the plant watered and living without flooding her little home. And to keep customers from thinking this is the plant they just have to have.

    How did you find it? See the bird fly in to it? That’s funny.

  2. Ken disturbed her when she was building a nest in a clematis pot earlier this week. He said she really chewed him out! He found it yesterday just at closing time. I just hope it can make it to hatching. Often the pot tips over or something funky. Fun to watch, though!

    Nice catch on the nest! I wish I could keep bleeding hearts alive……maybe I’ll try again now that my yard has some shade.

    Maybe she knew you would take good care of her nest.
