We always know Spring is here when this lady comes to visit.....


Every year we get some visits from our special Robin and this year she decided to use our umbrella tree in the front garden outside our formal dining room window...I was so excited to see her setting up her nest and notice that she is there every morning...watching us and I love seeing her too....I took the photo of her through our window and then went outside when she left the nest to take a shot of her three eggs...the colour is amazing!!!

Cole is so thrilled to be expecting her little babies....so so cute!!! we are doing some art now and painting some nests with eggs....

Have a wonderful day!!!

Wow, what amazing photos!! Seriously. :) I am so glad for Spring. I love hearing the birds chirping in the wee hours of the morning...something about that makes the day start off right.

Either the lens on that wonderful camera is strong or you are really good friends with this robin I love it. The little eggs look so beautiful. What a wonderful color blue. You have truly captured a moment Diana! This is awesome! You have taken spring to a whole other level with this bit of beauty!!! Thanks so much for you encouraging words. I send you a great big hug!

Exquisite photos. I am in awe at the clarity and the fact that you were able to include those beautiful blue eggs.
(PS - the only blue eggs I have ever seen are emu's eggs. They are huge - an emu being a similar size to ostriches. The shell is so tough that artists carve and paint them.)
