Dear Little Robin ~~~

Hello Friends!

When I was a child, I remember my dear mother singing a lullaby to me, and later I would sing it myself. I wish I knew the name of the tune, and maybe you know it yourself, here is the opening line ~~~
Dear Little Robin waiting so patiently, outside my cottage door ~~~ 

So, imagine my utter joy and delight upon opening my own cottage door to discover a Dear Little Robin waiting for me!

He's quite the obliging poser, don't you think?  He is a juvenile, one of this year's fledglings, and such a happy chappy. You can just see the beginnings of his red breast feathers coming in ~~~











but then, I think he'd had enough! "what do you want" said the cute little fellow, before he flew away ~~~


I look forward to many happy hours with him alongside, routing around in the freshly turned soil as I dig and pull out earth~bound juicy worms and bugs for him to feed on ~~~ they are such friendly, trusting souls ~~~

Until next time ~~~
~~~Deborah xoxo

  1. Your happy chappy (love that!) little fellow is GORGEOUS. And I think you are right--he was beginning to wonder what you were up to.

    1. Robins always give me "the look" when I'm gardening alongside them.

  9. What a cute little guy! Have you seen him since that storm came through? I sometimes wonder how animals cope during bad storms. Do they stay low to the ground? Go under things? They do something!

    1. My garden is always flittering and twittering with garden birds! It is a miracle how they do survive, but nature is like that, and has a strength and resilience that astounds me.
