Flowers, Birds, and Mother Nature in St. Louis
I believe this vine is a Vinca vine. It started in a hanging plant and now it's all over my beds. This one is under my Butterfly Bushes, so I am going to leave it. The others will meet their timely death with Round Up.
A few days later, I wanted to see how the eggs/birds were doing and I found this. :(
I don't know if eggs can hatch/birds fly away this quickly, but I doubt it. It looks like Mother Nature had a plan for the eggs. Boo.
When the kids were little, we had a hanging basket by our front door. Every year a bird would lay their eggs and we watched as the eggs grew, birds hatched, and learned how to fly away. Since our front door had a glass insert, the kids could watch the entire cycle without disturbing the eggs (although they had to tolerate the door being opened to come and go).
Any guess as to what happened to the eggs?
