A Pleasant Surprise

Look what I found...

Recently, my mom purchased some flowers from Home Depot and put them up in the front yard. Shortly after two robins decided to create their new home and start a family in the basket of flowers. Every time my mom takes the plant down to water it they go insane.




If you look closely you can see the mother or father's head poking out


The eggs have recently hatched but I haven't taken a picture of the babies yet.

Gorgeous flowers & a beautiful entryway! Bird nests are the true coming of spring for me! We had wren nests this year in our front shrubs. one day they are chirping away & it seems the next they are in the trees!

Thanks for sharing!

So precious! I'm glad they didn't get too freaked out by your Mom's watering and jostling them about and abandon the nest.
