Unexpected House Guests


Have you ever had a guest show up unexpectedly to your house? Last weekend, we had two!


Our first guest, Mr. Sticky Fingers, showed up after 5 hours of yard work. After planting dozens of bushes and flowers in the yard, Matt grabbed the watering can, only to find this cute little tree frog. 

He was safely returned to a tree in our backyard.

Later that day, we went to check the mail...


only to find a bird's nest!! Look deeeeeep inside....


not just a nest, but eggs too!


Naturally, we welcomed our new guests and even posted a little sign for the mailman to let him know they are here too.

Has spring brought you any unexpected guests?

  2. I love nature! I have some birds that have been waiting all winter, for me to put my hanging baskets out on our porch. They like to build their nests every spring in it. I welcome it too :) Love the sign
