Leaving the Nest
Mr. Lime has built a bird feeder and a nesting box for our yard. This Spring we had a house wren take advantage of the box. We were excited when seven little eggs appeared. And by little I mean about as big as my thumbnail. Itty bitty. Still, it was exciting to see.
And so it goes...thinking you've got just a little more time. Then suddenly the young ones are gone. This week Diana moved to Georgia. She's been on her own before but had been at home the last year saving up money to take the next step. She's now over 800 miles from where we are and I have to admit that though I am happy for her I'm a little sad for me because Georgia ain't quite as accessible as when she was just a couple hours west of here. When I was her age though I moved to an entirely different country so I guess I can't complain. It's her time to fly now.
