The mourning dove returns

Yes, she did!  She returned to the ivy hanging plant on the back porch outside the kitchen window.  She's been building her nest the past few days.    

Now we can watch her everyday until the baby dove arrive.  


Today I am repainting an old bird house that has been outside and is in need of some repair.  A few coats of paint should improve it, and I've decided to paint it all white.   

Have a good day!

How lovely to have the little dove return, maybe some of her young ones will also decide to come and nest with you. The little bird house is very cute.

It must be a delight to have the Mourning Dove back again!
I like white for a church birdhouse too.
