waiting...walking and working


waiting......for new life to begin.
i snapped this today when Sally (the robin) left the nest for awhile...i did'nt know the eggs were layed, but the other day as she prepared her nest, i knew she would be laying them soon.....so i stood on a box and had to reach high holding the camera over the nest which i could not see directly into at that height. I jumped down and ran back inside the house in case she came back and caught me, then i viewed the photo and gasped.....i was tickled pink or rather, blue to see the 2 perfect robins' eggs, the prettiest shade of blue i had ever seen!! How exciting!


Sally the robin (is'nt she darling) keeping her eggs warm.


Steve and I walked on the trail by Lake Ontario this morning about 2 kilometers and back and at a fairly brisk pace.

took a rest for a minute before continuing on the walk....

said hello to a friend....

took some nature shots. love the red blossoms against the blue sky...





when we returned home, i made some eggs (not the robins, which Steve jokingly suggested, hardy de har har) and then got to work on the yard.....

i started by doing a big clean up of the potting table which was a big mess (forgot to take before pics) with leaves and junk piled there and around the area....i swept and removed all the stuff away and reorganized so i can start potting some containers tomorrow.

it looks so much better now....




the narcissus has bloomed!!

Sounds like you had a lovely day!! I want to go hiking now that I have seen your wonderful photos. Spring is here and I need to get outside!! Whenever I see bird eggs I will always remember when my daughters were little and the wonder in their eyes looking inside the nests!!!!
