Summer solstice arrived yesterday with fits and starts of rain.
This morning, more rain.
Finally the rain stopped for a few minutes,
so I went outside and took a careful peek
at the violets growing in the window box.
There are wren's nests on either end of the box,
secluded among the thick green of the violet leaves.
The nest nearest the door
holds 5 tiny speckled wren's eggs.
And today, one tiny, nesting wren.
