and mud creatures..
(I have to confess that I did move the salamander a few feet to pose him under the four leafed clover. The old fashioned way of setting up pictures, before Photoshop)
In preparation for next week’s shearing, I discovered that Momma Wren had chosen to build a nest in a basket of fleece sitting on my work table.
A cardboard box on top of the basket gave her a narrow entrance into her cave. I moved the box to get a picture of the eggs. It has been replaced. Wrens are pretty tolerant of humans if you don’t get too close. I’ll be using a different table in the fleece room for a while! It’s good luck to have a wren nest in your house.
A four leafed clover and nest of wren eggs! What a great year!
And … maybe, with some luck … there will be May flowers.
