Eggs and Flowers

Last Spring I posted a photo of the Fringe Flower shot through a little clear diamond of glass in our leaded glass front door.  This year the flowers aren't as dramatic, but . . .
if you look really close in the bush, well hidden, is a Cardinal's nest.
Momma Cardinal is diligently sitting on the nest, keeping an ever watchful eye, 
and she will hunker down and disappear if you walk close, but not too close, or she will spook and fly away.
Occasionally, though, she must leave on her own, and during one of those times I opened the door, got a little closer, and saw two "soon to be" Cardinals, still in their shells.
