Tulips, Maples and Robins... oh my!

I've been playing with the "flower" setting on the digital camera... can you tell?

These are from early this month...

I've been continuing to document the robins this year and have some more photos to share.

May 7th ~ feathers are growing in...

May 8th ~ Yes, that's a 2nd nest with three more bright blue eggs that I found underneath the other side of the back deck!

May 13th ~ "I see you!"... the newer eggs still haven't hatched.

I just came in from a nest check... Although I haven't downloaded pics yet, I am happy to report there is the tiniest little chirp coming from the new nest, with one egg having just hatched. As for the original nest.... its empty!

Besides the tulips and robins, we have some all kinds of ahhh-chooo inducing things going on around here...

Maples...

Apple trees... although they are not nearly as pretty this year as they have been in the past. I think some of them are dying...

I hope you have enjoyed my photography fun. Now, if you'll please excuse me while I mourn in silence for a little while...

I hope those aren't the same parents on both nests. They'll be worn out. The flowers are lovely. Have a good weekend.
