In a quiet, mossy corner of the garden, a robin has made her nest.

For days it was empty, then there was one egg and on the next day, there were two. Perhaps there are three now, but we keep our distance. Last year's eggs didn't hatch. The gate is out of action for a few weeks, we tippy-toe nearby and draw the bedroom curtains as slowly and quietly as we can.

Extra peanut butter is put out daily and now we wait...

What a lovely place for a nest. Hope they hatch and fledge successfully. Love the pitchforks and the old bed springs is marvelous!

Thanks Leslie! Yes, my boyfriend has a vast collection of found and rusty things... you should see the shelves around the corner!
