Just so everyone knows, no bird was harmed by removing this nest from the bush.
The eggs were ruined by another bird or snake, so instead of letting another mockingbird nest, we removed it. As I stared at it, I couldn't help but be reminded
of what an empty nest feels like.
Yesterday made the empty nest feel so much better after recieving a package from Chris. She sent me a mixed cd and the very first song had me in tears. I can't remember the name of the song, but it's been in Mother's Day commercials for Hallmark thanking Mothers for their kindness, generosity and unselfishness. I realized that the empty nest held all the love and memories of a Mothers Love, so I want to do something with the nest. Not sure if I want to spray paint it and then decorate it with a few things.
If anyone has any suggestions, would love to hear them.
