In Our Hands by DelaneyLaFae In Our Hands by DelaneyLaFae
Nature is in our hands. What will we do with it?

I found a little nest left abandoned. It was carefully and delicately made of leaves, twigs, and bits of plastic bags. I found it falling apart alongside the dirt road where I live. I added the pine cones to symbolize that we must make the effort to restore nature as best we can, knowing that we can never make her completely whole again.

I have kept a couple that I've found. The one from this pic is sitting in a whiskey barrel with flowers and a little birdhouse. :D It still looks good, but the weather is starting to get to it. I'll have to bring it inside soon.
