Just eleven days later, our sparrows are toddling around the planter box, showing off their new feathers. The petunias may be cranky, because I don't want to water the nest or the toddlers, but the fledglings are happy with the arrangement.
See what we found nestled under the begonias and petunias in my window planter box? I noticed a few long strands of straw hanging over the edges of the box and realized they were attached to something precious. Now I water the flowers oh so carefully.
Thanks to my daughter, Jill, for the great picture!
