We had a great trip to Tucson to house sit and dog sit for our friends while they vacationed in Panama.
We took the slightly longer route through the mountains and were rewarded with poppies blossoming.
Before we left I did laundry as usual. When I went to reach in my clothespin bag, I felt some weeds. Since we had had some severe winds, I figured a tumbleweed had been blown in there. Instead what I discovered was a well built bird nest. Fortunately there were no eggs in it yet. I'm sure it's likely a house finch nest.
