Des Res

This morning I washed the front of the house. It's exhausting work. One side done, three to go. I had just packed away the mop and bucket and was standing back admiring the bright white woodwork, when who should start sweeping around on the veranda but the two welcome swallows from last year. Advance warning of a lot of muck and mess as they build their nest. However, this is a small price to pay for being host the them and their adorable rowdy progeny.

The tuis have produced a carpet of pink flowers on our driveway as they have pecked at them for the nectar. I gives all the trunks a pink skirt swirling at base and is rather charming.

So, the diary of spring starts. I will keep a record of the bird nests and varieties this year. Welcome to the desirable residence.
