Some backyard neighbors

 A few weeks ago, we discovered the above hummingbird nest in our pear tree.  It is about 1.5 inches from branch to top, and has about enough room for a half-dollar in the center.  It also had two lovely, tiny jelly-bean-sized eggs in it a few weeks ago.

 When we returned from our trip to Arizona, all that could be seen inside were dark feathers.  And not wanting to ruffle any, we let the nest be.  But at the end of last week, we got a glimpse of the occupants:
 Two sweet, tiny hummer babies are sunning themselves back there, and we are leaving their mommy to do her work unhindered.
What a lovely reminder of God's care for us as we watch Him provide for these little ones.
