Another way to build a house

I found this little three-and-a-half-inch-diameter gem a couple of days ago, clinging to an oak branch. The use of color and contrast are so pleasing; the lightness of weed stems and wads of spider web outside play against the darkness of horse tail hair on the interior.

We are currently in the throes of choosing the color for the exterior of our new house. It’s several hundreds of square feet and had better be right the first time. Our preferences are narrowing to the various hues of the soil surrounding the house. Just like this little bird’s nest, we too can blend with the surroundings.
