Right beside my daughter's swing set, as he made a pass close to it, he noticed a squirming pile of fuzz.
The nest was fortunately beneath ground level and safe from the mower passing over it. It is only about five inches in width.
I can't help it, I had to have a little peek! Carefully, I pushed back the surrounding fuzz...
Is that not the cutest thing you've ever seen? And just in time for Easter! I counted at least five. I didn't want to disturb them too much, so I snapped a couple quick shots and covered them back up.
|Are those not the most adorable little ears?|
This reveals that my dog is a lot lazier than we thought she was. They were hidden right under her nose! We'll be letting the dog out the back door for awhile, so that these darling babies can grow up to eat my garden. Ha.
