I’M GOING TO BE A NANNY!

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,

Linda
