This little nest, maybe for baby Fantail birds, was on the ground. It had been used, and was no longer needed this season. So much care,thought and work had gone into the making.Dry grass, twigs, more little pieces of twigs and stalks to reinforce the outer structure, then the lining began. The softest little feathers, in grey,fawn, light tan and cream, lovingly placed so her little birds would be safe and warm until their own feathers grew.
The side view shows how carefully this was woven together, and now there are mossy pieces and lichen there.

The pink poppies have bloomed so well this year, and there are also shades of mauve, and deeper pink, and some yellow /pink parrot flowers.
