As many of you know, our blogpal author Nadia Lee lives in Japan. I've been in touch with her via e-mail, and I am quite happy and relieved to report that she and her family are okay. She's also just posted more details about the situation there in an update on her blog.
This morning I finally got a clear shot of the mourning dove who decided to nest in one of my poinsettias (click on any image to see larger version):
Naturally while she was in the tree we decided to take a peek in the nest and see how her eggs are doing. Only they're no longer eggs:
I'll guess they hatched sometime late yesterday or last night, as they are tiny and still a bit egg-shaped:
Now we just need to explain (again) to our UPS guy why we'd like him to leave our packages by the garage door for the next three weeks.
My thanks to the Powers That Be for providing so many blessings this week.
