Saturday Sparks Link Party 432

Welcome to Saturday Sparks 432!

Starting off today's party with a close call!

We have a variety of shrubs bordering our foundation including this dwarf spruce.

One day I was watering the line of plants and as I moved the hose onto this evergreen, a startled bird flew out. 

I spread the branches a bit to see where she came from and much to my surprise found this hatchling filled nest (perhaps house finch). 

Luckily, I hadn't drowned the poor little things!

Over the next few weeks, I was careful to only water from the base of the shrub, so as to not disturb the precious cargo hidden within.

They grew quickly, until one day only an empty nest remained.

Another miracle of nature, another blessing to behold.
"If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly our whole life would change."
