This is my lilac bush. Growing so nicely this year. I brought the starts for this bush from my mom old house when she passed away, almost 9 years ago. Mom had three of the tallest lilacs in her front yard. They were cut down by the new owner last year. Mom used to let people pick bouquets of them all the time.
As I was on the west side of our house getting these photos , something else caught my eye.
In the block glass window, a robin had made a nest. Now she has four little babies to feed.
I got a little close for this shot. I did not linger as I saw the mom robin near by. I worry for these little guys. They are exposed to the rain , wind , and sun, where they are nesting. I am wondering why the birds aren't making their nests in the trees. There are so many trees in this area. Once last year, I was walking down our road and saw a nest on the ground by a telephone pole. It was next to the pole and it had 3 blue eggs in it, so I know it was a robin's nest. Poor planning.
Up date on my daughter. She is home and doing well. Thankful for all your prayers. Wishing all of you a great Monday. XO
