The beautiful owner of this home worked very hard this year to build the foundation for this nest. In previous years I’ve seen the nest built out of twigs and dried plant material, but this Spring the robins knew something I did not at the time…
We were going to have a very chilly Spring, and if you notice the mud foundation to this nest it would tell the story for this new season. I suppose she knew it would keep her eggs safe and warm until such time they hatched.
Since the nest was built on the corner of my deck I could see the tiny babies waiting for their mother to return with treats for them to enjoy… I waited and waited and one day the baby birds had left the nest, leaving this beautiful home abandoned.. But, oh what a beautiful home it still is.. Nature at its best and if we watch we’ll know some of the secrets mother nature is trying to tell us….
I actually planned my gardens around what these robins were telling me and so far I’ve not lost one plant due to the weather…
I bought some green onions at the grocery store, cutting off the green parts leaving about 2 inches of the white end of the onion…Then planted them in the garden and let them take off reaching for the sky…
Dreaming of Stir-Fry
I love the hint of white on the edges of my Red Peonies…
To my surprise this year there’s a bit of red in the center of my white peonies… Have my plants
been busy together, creating ?
Soon to become beautiful Poppies
