Well, looky there...

Over the weekend, my herb garden suffered a loss: the basil kicked it. Which I was afraid might happen since basil likes the heat and we had a few cold days last week. However, when I went out to check on the rest of them on Saturday, I found this!
A bird's nest with an egg! I noticed the twigs last week and almost trashed them until I noticed that they looked like they may have been strategically placed... sure enough, they were! I haven't seen the mom yet, which worries me a little bit, but we'll see! How fun would it be to have a baby bird "pet".

Moose personally couldn't care less. Alex held him up to look at it, and he responded by attempting to take a big chunk out of my mint plant.
