Today for Show and Tell, I've brought a tiny marvel of nature: a single snowflake. I think we might all learn a lesson from how this utterly unique and exquisite crystal turns into an ordinary, boring molecule of water, just like every other one, when you bring it in the classroom. And now, while the analogy sinks in, I'll be leaving you drips and going outside." ~ Calvin, from Calvin & Hobbes

Nature in our yard
This nest is in a bush in our front yard.
Here one egg hatched.This is one week later.
It's amazing how fast they grow. The mama leaves and comes back, she watches us from the roof. We pose no threat to her and her babies. We are waiting for the other eggs to hatch.
