We've been sprucing up our arbor and patio getting ready to enjoy some warm leisure time outside. The arbor had to be re-stained. I'll show some before and after photos at a later post. Our Adirondack chairs and glider had to be painted, have to find a new umbrella for our patio table, and then we can start scattering some pretty flowers all around. In the process, we discovered a robin's nest at the top corner of the arbor. My hubby climbed up a ladder and got this photo of the red red robin's eggs. Aren't they a pretty blue? Thus the popular color, Robin's egg blue. Have you ever wondered why red robins lay blue eggs? We are going to keep a watch on the progress of these little eggs and mother robin red dress and let you know the outcome. (That is if I can get him to climb that ladder again!) :=O
Here's a shot of the corner of the arbor where Mizz Robin lives with her quadruplet of unhatched baby blue bird eggs.
Oh...and how about that wisteria hanging on the arbor. A couple of years ago it bloomed like this, but was quickly killed by a late freeze so this year is the first time we have been able to enjoy it's blossoms. As you can see, the bees like it too.
