    While out early this morning gardening I happened upon a very cute new friend. A baby Mockingbird. How cute.

    Our tree out front had a nest with three babies. All have left home. We've watched them over the past few weeks. Watched mommy in and out of the nest. What fun to watch baby birds grow from eggs to their first flight. He or she struggled a little but did make it. A few weeks ago my gardening buddy was a baby Rock Dove under the roses.

    The wonders of nature.

    I love when the blue birds bring their babies up on our deck railing and teach them how to look for bugs in the grass below.

    Very cute garden buddy. I'd probably freak out first if I heard something rustling around. LOL But, he seems friendly, especially compared to a snake.

    We've got bluebirds in our yard. Never got to see the babies though. I love watching the birds. I've got several birdbaths around the yard. We put fresh water out for them twice a day. You wouldn't believe the birds that actually use it. Even the blackbirds drink and bathe in them.

    Snake! Nope, I would have been in the next state had it been a snake. We have those big, black snakes around here. I've seen them several times. Fortunately each time I was in the house and it still freaked me out. I hate snakes.

    From what I was told it's against the law to kill those snakes here in Ga. No need to worry about me killing them. You wouldn't get me close enough to them to kill them.
