A Navy medic who is getting ready to go to medical school moved in where the college kids were. The house on the other side is empty. The yard there needs serious attention. But I spied this little pretty dangling from a tree.
I put on my shorter ankle brace today, and had less pain. I was even able to mop the filthy floors that have been bothering me for weeks.
That fact alone gave me hope and a bit of happiness. So I went into the yard with more confidence. And captured all that was transpiring.
This robin is building a nest. I watched and watched until I finally found the nest. Here it is.
I watched as the robin worked diligently on it. Flying out and grabbing up debris in its beak. Then coming back to the nest and working it in.
This iris should fully open in a day or two. One of you guys sent it to me last year to start the garden.
This one is still on the job, hard at work. Rat-a-tat-tat.
Does anyone know what this little bird is? I don’t believe it’s a sparrow. It has a nest in one of the bird houses. And is anxiously waiting for me to leave the yard.
Last week I was able to sit and work on this fence bed I created last year. I removed all the dead stalks and cleaned it up a bit. The climbing roses are about to bloom. They are threading their way through the fence. I didn’t get a chance to cut them back before I saw the buds.
And here are the pupsters. I’ll be back later today for Tweak It Tuesday.
