Ahhhh….Robin’s Egg Blue. What is it about this color that is simultaneously so calming and chic? I just know that I love it and by the looks of things out there, so do a lot of you.
As much as I love the color, I had no idea that’s what I would find in a nest that was built under the umbrella that shades our outdoor dining table.
3 times…yes, 3 times I tried to move the nest before mama Robin laid her eggs. But, she and papa Robin were very diligent and determined. And, I am so very glad that they were.
The nest was right outside my kitchen window, so I did enjoy watching the eggs hatch, one by one….and fly away. As little birds do.
And as much as I enjoyed this little spring ritual…I’d prefer for the Robin’s to pick a different location next year.
So, off I went to my local garden center, where I saw a number of darling birdhouses.
This weekend, mine was finally installed in our side yard.
So, while it’s for the birds…it’s also for me.
What do you think about the color Robin’s Egg Blue?
