I'm sitting out here on my back porch, doing edits on the soon to be re-released Pirate's Price
and I'm watching a bird build a nest in my hanging impatiens. I think it's common house wren, and it's a busy little sucker, flying back and forth in my line of vision, carrying various twigs about. It looked like it was fixin' to rain earlier so I took my baskets out from under the eaves so they can get a bath. Everything's covered with yellow pollen right now, so a soak would do them well. But I saw the nest in the impatiens and knew I'd be handwatering that one for a while.

A small price to pay for the entertainment value of watching this industrious little fellow inspire me to keep at my edits.
