We Have Babies!

You may remember that a Mama Robin built her cozy little home inside our front door flower basket. Today we gained 4 new residents at Rabbit Run! 4 of the 5 little blue eggs hatched and out they came! Mama Robin has declared war on anything and anyone who comes near the front yard or porch. So, for at least another few days, we can do no planting or weeding or re-doing the door basket! Bill was able to mow (We use a push mower so I guess it is just quiet enough not to frighten her.) but that is it for our front yard beautification this week! Groucho, Harpo, Chico and Zeppo, (Sadly, little Gummo did not hatch) may you fly high and sing happily. Happy Birthday!

Oh how wonderful! One of my favorite things about spring is finding the nests with such beautiful little eggs and watching the babies grow up. Thank you for sharing your dear little nest with us:>)

That is so sweet that you have babies in your door wreath! For the second year we had a nest in one of my birdhouses. But we had a terrible storm a few weeks back; when I lifted the birdhouse, the three eggs were on the ground and the parents were nowhere to be seen. I went back later and the eggs were gone. My husband says the parents probably came back and got them; but I think he just said that so I wouldn't get upset. I'm so glad you stopped by my blog - I've missed you!
