good morning monday! how was your weekend? mine was a great one full of sunshine and house cleaning (how fun!). today is the mister's birthday, so i've got a bit of planning and wrapping presents to do today- he's turning 25!
do you remember the baby robin's eggs i had in my garden? well, they hatched and i've been able to take pictures of them as they've grown and i'm a little sad to say that they've flown the coop! i guess i should have known that was coming. i couldn't believe my eyes of how much they had grown every day! here's a summary of their progression:
aren't they darling? all four hatched and survived, due to the mother's highly protective care (and i mean highly!).
these little birdies (not sure what kind?) were in a bird house i have, and i love this 'surprised' pic i got of them! i peeked in on them one day when they were little and found a nest of fire ants all over them , so with a little diatomaceous earth (food grade, very safe) i dusted around the nest and like to think that i saved their little lives! they've flown the coop as well, so it's all empty nest syndrome here!
