Hi blog friends,
Up until about an hour ago I didn’t have much to post about. While at the BBQ, my daughter noticed a nest in my Wisteria tree. I hadn’t noticed it and I’m always out in my yarn weeding and pruning, especially the tree because it grows a mile a day.
Being so high up in the tree, all I could see was the bottom of the nest but it sure was a nest! I managed to pull down the branch a bit while standing on a lawn chair, reached up and randomly took a photo. Lo and behold, I have 2 blue eggs!!!!! I’m so excited. In all my years, I’ve never had a nest or anything exciting happen in my garden.
I went on-line to get some info and the eggs incubate for about 12-14 days. Also, Starlings lay blue eggs so I’m not sure who these eggs belong to but honestly, I’ve been seeing a male and female robins in my yard for several weeks so I’m thinking they’re robin eggs.
So this is my tree in full bloom several weeks ago.
Here’s a pic of the underside of the nest.
And here’s a pic of my little darlings. Isn’t this just too cute!
I hope I get to see them hatch and finally fledge. This is by far the most exciting thing that has happened to me in ages.
Proud Nanny to be,
