i didn’t do much over the weekend… i craved a few days free of obligations and chores and travel. i needed to reacquaint myself with my outdoor surroundings, and there were a few surprises:
i discovered a robin’s nest in my backyard, and the eggs have already hatched. there are 2 fuzzy babies! i had been finding robin egg shells in my yard in may, but i didn’t realize the nest was steps from my back door.
a pair of house wrens laid eggs in their 2nd attempt at a nest on a wreath right outside my front door. the last time this pair nested in this spot, the baby birds fell out of the nest onto the concrete. i must get to the nursery and fill a planter with annuals and place it directly under the nest ASAP!
the first echinacea bloom! it’s a little straggly, but it definitely says summer is here!
