My Neck of the Woods--Babies are Coming!

I'm hookin' up with the laaaaay-deeeees at the RHOK to let you know a little bit about what's going on in My Neck of the Woods today. Head over to the RHOK to find out more about what's going.

In my neck of the woods, or I should say, on the electric meter on the side of my house, a mama Robin has made her perfect little nest and laid her perfectly Robin's Blue eggs. I wish I had gotten a better photo because this nest is seriously something out of a nature photo, it's perfectly symmetrical with cute little sprigs shooting out here and there. And look at those eggs. Precious little birds. BUT...I was taking my life in my own hands by taking this pic, that perfect nest-making mama was lurking, just waiting to attack if I made the wrong move. I will tell you this, she hasn't left her nest since I took this pic. She's probably thinking, "I leave for one second and blondie over there descends on my nest. No way am I leaving again." And she hasn't.

We're just waiting for the arrival of our four babies birds. Our next door neighbor has a nest on her front door wreath and her babies have hatched, so I'm thinking it should be any day now.

I love spring. I love signs of new life and new beginnings. The flowers blooming, the birds chirping. I love that even though we live in the middle of town that nature is unfolding right in front of us.
Happy Spring, my friends!!!

Oh--and I'd love to have a dress in the exact color of those eggs.

Those eggs are the most beautiful blue. I love how God created nature. Post pics of the nest if you can do it without getting dive bombed by momma Robin?! Would love to see it!
Thanks for linking up today - Mrs. M

That is a nice color. If momma bird knew you, she wouldn't worry.

Jacob made me a ceramic birds nest just like this for mothers day. Same blue!
