april desktop calendar


There is a story behind the little bird's nest on my April desktop calendar.

(just click on the image for the 1200 x 800 pixel desktop calendar)

Two weeks ago I trimmed some trees on our property.

Unfortunately the little nest, no bigger than the palm of my hand, was on one of the branches I cut off.

I had a closer look, and that's when I saw it:



A discarded loose end of overlocked cotton thread, that should have found it's way into the dustbin, was used by a bird to make his nest a little cozier. My only consolation after removing the nest is that it's autumn in South Africa and that the little chicks that might have been raised in this nest, are big enough to build their own nests for winter and raise their young when spring arrives in September ...

I so enjoyed your pom-pom blog. I love the feeling I get looking at the photos and reading so many wonderful sayings. I must share your blog with my readers on my blogspot. I hope you don't mind that I share. It's so calming comforting a site and so there's many beautiful crochet patterns and projects.
