Eggs'n Baskets

The mini baskets are about 3". I am in a quandry as to adding another color or not and on the plan to arrange them. I'm thinkin' of intersecting them w/background blocks. I'll work on them some more this weekend!
Ms. Robin has finally completed her egg laying and is now in the "fever sitting" mode! So....I have marked the calendar and lets see if it takes the 21 days that the experts say to hatch the eggs!

Have you ever seen as turquoise/blue as this robins egg is?? Click on the photos and look really close at the marveless nest building she had done! It took her 2 days to gather all of the ingredients and then another day to do the "plastering" of the mud and then the next day to add the cushy dry straw material before she decided it was "just right" to start her family!!!

Robin and Mini's!

Okay, I have to say there is never a dull moment around here!!! Last week as I opened the living room drapes to greet the morning, there was this bunch of "weeds" stuck in the ribs of the umbrella!! Now I know they were not there the day before! As you can see we have a Robin who is claiming this "spot" to build her nest!!! She was undaunted by the tilt of the umbrella and when the gust of winds we had tipped the table and umbrella over, didn't phase her! I ran out and straightened it up! Boy, that just was ok w/her!This spot is usually where we enjoy our morning coffee! It will be awhile before we can claim our "spot"! I thought these photo's would be in seqence, but I think you get the idea of the progress.
Robin does not mind that we are living in "her space". Even our little Skipper dog looked up at the construction w/wonder!! So meantime....I am working on my mini baskets and watching one of God's creations unfold practically in the house.....!!!!! DH has taken over the photo documenting, I'll post the progress.
