|The Bluebird house at the corner of the garden|
This year we put a Bluebird house on the corner post of the garden. We enjoyed watching the birds all spring, and for the past few weeks, after the eggs hatched, each evening we could sit and watch them feeding.

When they would land at the door to the house we could hear the babies raising a ruckus.

Last Thursday evening I noticed that the fledglings were looking out and I expected they were about ready to leave the nest. Sure enough, when we got home last Friday after our day in the orchard the nest was empty and quiet. We still see them on the edge of the woods, but I miss my Bluebirds.
