Look who made themselves a home for their babies while I was on vacation. DH noticed it yesterday. It is literally sitting right on my potting bench directly as you open the door onto our back deck. Now we have to go out the front door, then into the garden so we don't bother Mom while she is keeping her babies warm.

I can't wait for their arrival!

How beautiful.
Love the sweet little eggs.
How lovely that you will go out the other door so as not to disturb the Mom.
Have a great week

blue eggs! my Mom was called the bird lady. She always had a nest on her porch each spring. Birds known by vibration where to nest. you must have great energy at your house for one to nest so close to you!

Linda said... are so blessed to have her build her nest there! What a joy.... found you through Christine's blog.

Aren't they just so sweet? My husband was clearing out some old trees/brush, and found a little tree with a nest/eggs of robin's. So the tree stays! :)

Just how precious can life get?? I am awaiting the arrival of the barn swallows who nest here every year--they're a little late, I'm a little worried. Enjoy. Fabulous pictures, can't wait to see the babies.

Hi Cathy,,, how sweet to have a bird with her nest on your porch. She must feel very safe there. Thanks for sharing. I love the three wreaths you also posted!!! I really like under the big top. I love lots of color. I am looking forward to beautiful pictures from the pink fairy cottage this hugs, gail

Such a precious gift! She chose just the place to nurture her as she nurtures her babies....=0]

aaaaawwww.....I'm so jealous!!! A couple years ago we had a mockingbird nest in the tree outside my studio. I loved watching the babies learn to fly and hearing them sing for their mom and dad..... we don't get to many nest though. Birds tend to avoid our yard due to the cat factor.... karin@creativechaos
