An Empty Nest (320/365)

“An empty nest! It used to bear
A happy burden, when the breeze
Of summer rocked it, and a pair
Of merry tattlers told the trees
What treasures they had hidden there

James Whitcomb Riley (1849-1916 / Indiana / United States) “An Empty Nest.” lines 11-15.

TIME:  4:26 PM
PLACE:  Front yard
SUBJECT:  Bird nest

Our Purple Sand Cherry shrub has shed all of its leaves and revealed two bird’s nests tucked away in its branches.  I knew there was one nest in it (I had taken a picture of the baby birds earlier in the spring), but didn’t realize that there was a second one as well.
In other news, MonkeyBoy’s basketball team tied 23 to 23 in overtime (In grade school, if they are tied at the end of the game, they play one overtime.  If tied at the end of overtime, then a tie is recorded for that game).  And guess who made the shot that got our team from 21 to 23 points? It was my boy…He made the basket as time ran out.  Go MB!!!
