Slice of Life #20 Challenge Day 22/31: 
Signs of Spring

My good friend and neighbor, Dave, couldn't be a better walking partner. As we left for a long walk this afternoon (following social distancing parameters, of course), he pointed out a mourning dove that has recently taken residence in the vines that adorn his porch.

  1. What an intersting place to nest. I love your last line "porch vine habitat" - perfect image.
