Weekly Photo Challenge: Optimistic

The theme of this week’s WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge is OPTIMISTIC.

What could be more optimistic than a Carolina Wren laying its eggs in a pitcher on my front porch?

    How lucky to be able to watch the lifecycle at such close quarters. I hope you keep a photo record of them

    This is so fun! And I once had robins hatch in my front hanging plant! The porch was so filled with life that year and it felt amazing – and so when I saw the eggs and the blue rim of your pot- I could see why you chose these wren eggs – and nice focus too!


  8. That is a truly great entry. 🙂

    when I see the photo, I imagine, how nice to see them hatch. But when I read your comment that the pitcher was overturned, I am so sad.
