Look Closely...
Actually, in the above picture, 
it looks like one of the white petals
is pointing to the egg.
I bought this hanging basket for the deck.
As soon as it was hung, I saw a couple of sweet,
little birds, flying in and out of the container.
They made quite a mess, at the time, knocking
off lots of the plant's blooms. I wondered what
they were doing and they were such cute birds,
I didn't care about my plant getting demolished, 
sort of... :)
Well, I like to water it with rain water so I take it 
down and put it on the patio area when it is raining.
My husband discovered the tiny nest, which I know you 
cannot really see, and two little eggs.
The trouble is, he dropped the basket and the eggs
toppled out of the little nest...  :(
I got a glove for him and he placed them carefully
back inside the nest. 
I don't know if we have ruined the beauty or not.
Anyway, we are hopeful.
It has once again ( sort of tired of all the rain ) been raining most of the day, so we have not been watching to see if the sweet mom and dad have been flying back to the nest.

In that last picture, it looks like the color of a robin's egg.
