good ol' spring

The rain has been a welcome inconvenience, and the temperatures are up and down in what feels like a pretty random pattern, but you know that Spring is officially here when the swallows renovate their nest and start getting territorial ...

For a couple of weeks, the pair who live on our verandah were extremely busy collecting mud, grass and feathers to get their nest up to scratch ... but not as busy as they are now ...

Totally exciting - 4 babies - all ravenous, all constantly cheeping for more ... Mr and Mrs Swallow are looking skinnier and skinner by the day, but are keeping up with a pretty extreme demand.  Sure, it's a natural obligation, but for these ugly little monsters???
