This blog is about my garden and the outdoors. I am new to photography but I am trying to show some of the pretty things that grow here in Michigan. I love the wild things who visit me and I dont mind if they eat a bit here and there. I like it more if they let me take their picture. As time goes on I think I will try to show you around the beautiful area that I live in as well as my garden. I try to use my own pictures as much as possible but will also use pictures from the web. If I inadvertently use your photo or work without permission please email me and I will remove it or give credit if you prefer. I will give credit when I know who the owner is. I would ask that anyone using my pictures do the same.
... I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.......Psalm23:6

Robin's Nest.................

We have our annual Robin's nest on the front porch. There are 3 existing nests that they seem to rotate. The middle one is the chosen one this year and she has shored it up and refurbished it. I have yet to see her sitting on it but have seen her visiting. So maybe they are still in the process of making the nest habitable. This is one of the pair complaining of my arrival just as they decided to drop in on the nest. 107_0118 I continued on to the front garden and ewwww .....there was the Robin hunting for a worm and was hot on the trail, not inclined to leave either so I got quite close. 107_0127 She looked at me as if to say, this is a BIG one and I am not leaving till I get it. Oh gag.....and it was. 107_0124 It was a very big juicy worm. I could not look, even though I took the picture I had to leave. Pity those babies have not showed up yet, it would have fed them for a month. 107_0120 On a brighter note the Cardinal hubby was out back being nice and eating seeds. 107_0105 He and the little wife I pictured the other day in the apple tree, have a nest in the front Blue Spruce. 107_0107 Here she is to remind you, what a lovely couple they are................ Photobucket 107_0106 Meanwhile Mrs Robin was back on her nest. Maybe I should light her up at night so she can see..............nah....don't think she would appreciate that. Looks like the lights have to stay for a time yet. 107_0147
