Dominique, at Slow Love Life, wrote this post called Egg Book the other day. She included this beautiful photograph of a red-winged blackbird's egg featured in a book of photography called Egg and Nest, by Purcell, Hall and Corado
She goes on to speak about leaving dryer lint, hair from your hairbrush, dog hair
and even that funny multi-coloured 'straw' that goes into Easter baskets
out for the birds and mice to build their nests with. This benefits both man and
wee creatures as they love the soft fluffy materials, and we get to find the abandoned
nests in the fall and winter, lined with all this precious re-cycling.
This small act of symbiosis seems perfect for August's Project Genesis
at The Old Grey Mare, so I am going to take the liberty of sending it there.
I think this idea is brilliant, and worth sharing!
I hope you don't mind Dominique.
