In the hedge

Chris’s father and his brother (who’s visiting us from England) spent all this morning trimming the top of our camellia hedge. They must have chopped quite a lot as now I can see a bit of our neighbour’s house. I noticed a big bushy hump on top of the hedge that looked like it was forgotten about. The brothers told me how they’d found a bird’s nest and a little yellow baby bird inside the tree so they’ll leave that bit untouched until the bird family leave their house for good. When I went around to see the baby bird there already was a protective mother dove sitting in her nest hiding her baby from my sight. I quickly left them alone as I didn’t want the mother to get too nervous.

 

I hope they still think our house is a safe place to live.
