We had an old-fashioned pink rose which got a terrible blight. But when we went to cut it down back in the spring we found a bird's nest inside. So we left the rose bush alone until the bird's had moved on.
Last weekend we finally had a vacancy so we took the rose bush out. I hate taking out rose bushes but it has to be removed anyways. It grows up the side of the porch and our goal is to screen it in this summer!!! :)
Below is the empty nest sitting in Sid's lap. Sid lives on our front porch as the focus of our outdoor alter. We like to leave Him natural offerings. And the nest told us this is where it belonged.
