Down at the Pond

The American Robin is nesting at the side of our house.   Here he is down at our pond getting his mud wet to make a solid home for the new babies.   More watery wonders can be found at Watery Wednesday.

How sweet. I hate it here when the crows go after the robin babies in their nests.
How delightful to have them nesting so close to the house. Enjoy.

Great shot of the robin going about his housebuilding chores. A pair of moorhens live on our pond and I could watch them for hours!
Thanks for visiting Normandy for MM, come back again soon, we love it when friends stop by.

Lovely photo of the American Robin collecting materials for her new house. Really nice to have it building so close.

What a darling picture and harbinger of spring!

Abstract Flowers

I found this photo in my Lightroom files yesterday and I decided to join Bonnie for her monthly Pixel Dust Photo Art PhotoArtFriday. Her theme this month was funny enough abstract art.  So I added one of her textures called Si  Belle to my abstract flowers and that is it.

First Birthday

Yesterday my husband and I attended our granddaughters first birthday party.  The house was alive with little ones having a fun time of running through the house.  Kenzi wanted to join it but they kept knocking her down as they sped past her.  She is a trouper though.  No tears as she got back up and tried to go with the flow again. The hitch came when she was to participate in the smash the cake ritual that all of my daughter-in-laws family do at the first birthday.  Her maternal grandmother had made the smash cake and Kenzi was supposed to get down into it with both hands and get covered in cake.   Kenzi was having no part in it.  She cried as her hand was pushed into the cake.   Oh well maybe next year.  It was lovely to see all the little babies born at the same time as Kenzi and how sweet they all were.  Kenzi’s cake was an Elmo cake.  He is her favourite character.  I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.  I can feel spring in the air even though we have quite a bit of snow left bu…
