Wildlife Weekend :: Mother's Day

It's Mother's Day today and it's time for all of us to say thanks to our moms for going through all the trouble of raising us. Happy Mother's Day to my wonderful mom, who always encourages me to try anything because it might just work out. My mom is the one who encouraged me to start my web design business, my sewing business, to start gardening and even to get chickens. She really does believe that I can do anything if I just try. It's nice to know that no matter what I have someone out there who'll support any hair-brained idea that pops into my mind. Thanks mom!

And Happy Mother's Day to all the wonderful gardening mamas who stop by and read my blog from time to time! You're teaching your children an amazing life lesson that will stick with them forever if you've got a family garden! Hopefully they'll continue gardening with their own children one day.

Since today is a day dedicated to mothers, I thought these photos would be appropriate. Aidan is the one who spotted this in the tree by our shed, which makes sense since his eyes are only 5 years old and are in full working order.

Do you see it?

How about now?

A little closer?

There's mama dove on a nicely-made nest just as still as a statue keeping those eggs warm. She's doing what moms do best - putting herself second in order to nurture her little ones and keep them safe.

Happy Mothers Day to you Kate. You are such a great Mom. Your son's are so lucky to have a mom who teaches them about looking after the earth and teaching them skills they will pass on to their children one day..Love your blog

That was a nice post. Seems like your mom passed on some good mom genes to you.

Great pictures of the doves.
