Spring-time around my yard

Thought I’d share a quick little post of a couple neat things I’ve found in my backyard!

We have a sweet little Inca Dove that nested in our lemon tree. Bobby was trimming it back and the nest fell! There were two newborn fledglings in it and so we placed it back neatly on the branch and the mom came back almost immediately. She has been diligently with them since and boy have they gotten big! They are easily half her size at this point.Β 


Their plumage has the most beautiful design. I love watching these love birds in our yard.

Another little surprise… ever wondered what a pineapple looks like when it is just beginning to grow? We have had this plant for years and it has been looking especially rough the past couple weeks. I was considering pulling it up when I noticed this!


Pretty neat. I’ll keep you posted on its growth. Happy Spring!

      Thanks for your comment! The doves are really cute… they decided to live in my yard so I get to see those babies flying around every day!
