Spring Surprise!

by Diana Jean
(Warwick,, Rhode Island)

When I was ready to take my Winter wreath off my front door,I got a beautiful Spring surprise! A Mourning dove was perched on the top of the wreath in a nest. I have seen father and mother taking turns sitting on the nest. They have had babies. I think their are two. One has hatched. They are devoted parents! I am thrilled that I was blessed with these doves at my door.They have very special significant meaning when they encounter you. Such a wonderful sight to behold! I have uploaded pics. Enjoy!
