An Easter Surprise

We had a nice Easter surprise. I noticed one day that there were three eggs nestled in my geranium plant on the front porch. It seems like every time I looked at it there were one more added to the nest. It was as if the Easter bunny was making me aware of the beauties of spring with birth and growth everywhere. It was fun watching the nest grow. Today we have 11 eggs and the mother quail is now sitting on them. We have to be careful not to use the front door or she gets scared away (just ask Elder Wright who peaked in to see the eggs and the mother flew up and into his face. The frightening look on his face was worth a million.) We are expecting little quails to be poking out of their shells soon. Stay tuned for the next photos of the little quails in the nest.
