Moving the "nest"

We moved the hanging begonia, the one our mourning doves nested in, to the corner of the shade garden in the backyard. We'd read that doves might lay as many as four clutches of eggs in the course of a summer and we didn't want to sacrifice that begonia completely, but we knew it would be a temptation to the doves if we left it where it was on the front porch. So we transplanted it into the ground and it's revived wonderfully and provides a bright spot of color in the still quite empty shade garden.
