Slice of Life - Baby Birds and flowers

It has been a gorgeous weekend - hot and sunny all 3 days of this 2-4 weekend.
We bought our flowers on Saturday and planted some yesterday and today. What a difference when gardens are filled with flowers!
We did not finish the new garden at the front, but we will gradually get it done this week. In the fall we had a huge tree removed and we have decided to plant a perennial, full-sun garden - something I haven't had in a long time.

Yesterday morning I discovered that our morning dove has hatched her eggs - 2 downy little birds could be seen.

Then this afternoon, as my hubby and his son were putting in the new fence they built by our cedar hedges,

 they discovered a robin's nest with babies. When I went to look, there were 2 little ones and a blue egg. New life all around!

We too are finding baby birds a plenty. They are such a joyous reminder of renewal.
