If this week's Nature Shelf had a theme, it would have to be 'preparation is key'.
Somehow the idea that I would have to do something to be ready for the new week, and adding an item representing the animal kingdom, totally escaped me, until I found myself scrambling at the last minute. Not good.
But I found a couple of sweet little birds that I had tucked away, and made a little nest out of some wool roving ... and there we have it; birds in a nest. Which is really more spring-like, than representative of approaching Fall, but it's something at least!
