Wrensday: Surprises at The Wren

Well, our fears are relieved.  Reba is a Reba and not a Rambo as we feared. 

See those tail feathers?  Well, an observant reader wrote to say that what we thought was a she might be a he, so to keep an eye on her/him. 

So we waited. . .

And then one day we found this. . .

Then we did the happy dance.  Thankfully, she now lays her beautiful eggs in the nesting box in the chicken coop.  Yay!!

We're also finding lots of beautiful things in the back woods.  Look at this fungus.

And this moss.

And isn't this color beautiful?

What surprises have you been finding around your home?

I'm linking to:


  1. Very lovely surprises:) I am so looking forward to finding one of my own very soon!

    I enjoyed the photos from your woods. What a pleasant stroll.

  2. Flies and ants - those have been my surprises! LOL

  3. A fresh egg, what a great surprise to find around your home! We've toyed with the idea of raising chickens, but we won't be able to do it in our current house due to homeowner association rules. I'm so envious of people who get their own fresh eggs, though. In the meantime, I have to satisfy myself with just homegrown veggies.

    The greens of your moss are very pretty indeed.


I'd love to know what you're thinking. Please feel free to leave ideas and comments.
