Here are 3 ladies from the Victorian era....a studio photo.....lovely dresses

Our mourning doves have returned! They are building a new nest in the same tree...how fun! as I said in an earlier post, I wasn't sure if they would nest in the same place but that question has been answered....guess they didn't like the gourd birdhouse, it would have been too small for them anyway....its amazing to me...once the eggs are laid, its only about 10-12 days until they hatch...they usually have two eggs...the babies stay in the nest about another 12 days or so and then start venturing on their own....last year the two babies hid under our rose bushes...we have one climbing rose bush that is huge until they got more confidence...

Our nectarine tree is going to start blooming any time now...its covered with buds and there are a few that have opened...I want to post a photo when its covered with pink flowers...hope we get a few nectarines this year...

also I wanted to mention that the EZshoppe yard sale doesn't start officially until tomorrow, the 5th..they are going to have drawings and games so don't miss getting in on the fun....prizes too! I am not doing it this year but my dear friend Nancy is so please take a look. She has some nice things listed, over 100 items..
