Where did my creative adventure take me today?  Well...last year we had a blue bird build a nest in my English ivy trellis which has a large heart cut out at the top. This trellis is high maintenance and I am always trimming the heart out especially during early spring. We did not trim it when we discovered the perfect little nest with the perfect little blue speckled egg. We hope the bird comes back this year.

Stay warm harted
