Yucca plant

Dawn, can you tell us more about your yucca please.  How long have you had it and where is it planted.  What is the usual feeding and watering regime?

If you could post a picture too that would be helpful.  To upload a photo from a pc you need to click on the green tree icon on the toolbar above where you type your post, and follow the instructions. Sadly it doesn't work for phones - yet 

If it doesn't work let us know.

Which birds nest is this?

I would say that's a goldfinch nest.

A gentle shake and they'll usually drop out -  we used to find them dropping from sweet peas in the vase onto the polished dining table every summer.
