    Love it! Is there anything prettier than robin’s egg blue? Wait! Is that a Robin? LOL

    I am on Baby watch also. My nest has 6 eggs. I think its a sparrow. She built it in one of my hanging geranium baskets, so I have to hand water it instead of using the sprayer. I can’t wait.

    Amazing pics – thx for sharing.

  12. Tammy Says:

    Those are great pictures. Can’t wait until Wednesday-keep the pictures coming!

  13. DesignTies Says:

    Too bad one of the eggs disappeared. But how exciting that the remaining three eggs have hatched and you now have some new little house guests 🙂

    What a beautiful blue. So that’s why the color is called Robin’s egg blue. I’ve never seen a robin’s nest before, in real life.

    Gorgeous.
