Happy Mother's Day

Pin It!



Happy Mother's Day to all the Moms, Step-Moms, Grand moms, God moms, Foster Moms, Adoptive Moms, and any other kind of Mom there is.... Thank you for all that you do! Take a minute and give yourself a giant hug for me!!! You deserve it!


This year I got the pleasure of becoming a Grandmother and I can't tell you how much I love that little guy. He means the world to me! And he couldn't ask for a better Mommy than Felicia!


This past winter Nick, our son, bought his house so we became empty nester's. Well we are no longer "empty nester's". Lucy, as our neighbors daughter named her, moved in. Lucy, is a robin that is going to raise her little chicks right outside our living room window. After lots of failed attempts I decided to help this sweet little robin mommy build her nest by anchoring the lantern to the post. I wound a piece of wire around the lantern, through the door, around the post and out the screen. She was thrilled to be able to build her nest. And what a nest it is!

I made a little sign to block off the outside path to our bistro area and front enterance to the sunroom where she built her nest. That way she gets her peace and quiet without anyone disturbing her.

How exciting to have Robins build a nest there.It will be fun to watch their developement. Can you see inside? How many did she lay? I live in an apartment, with a wall mounted flower box and silk flowers on my balcony.Robins have returned for 4 years now to the same spot. I also had some squatter Doves come in and use last years Robin nest. We she was done and 2 babies flew off, the Robin came back, rebuilt ontop of the old nest and has 4 eggs.

How cute is that! I love your sign. I think it is great that you got the nest right there so you get to be part of it.
