observe / watch

I've been putting out little bits of dryer lint, string and various things for the birds to use in their nest. I think they'd like that don't you? I wish there was a place where a bird would build so that I could witness more carefully their procedure in building. Last year, my brother and his family had a great time observing a bird family - right from a big picture window they could see the nest in a gardenia bush. The twins were 7 years old. What a great learning experience for them. They got to see the mother sitting on the nest and then the eggs after they hatched and watch the mother bird feed the babies all the way until they left the nest. Have you ever had an experience similar to that? / my friend william helped me prepare my little egg plant to grow (not that it was hard or anything). we had plans to give it a name but have since postponed them until one of us has a revelation that will suit him/her perfectly. it will be fun to watch the plant inside grow day by day as the plants outside leaf out and flower. the huge tree we have right outside our dorm window has transformed before our eyes in what seems to be only days. it's crazy to think georgia weather is so erratic that it's snowing one day and seventy degrees the next.. i like my little plant, but i wish it would actually flower in it's tiny egg pot! it's only supposed to sprout ]:

If you care to visit, I, Leslye, have another blog - AutumnSun where I ramble around different paths and pleasures of my own.
