  1. Beautiful pictures, all of them. But the Robin's nest was an unexpected treat. My last blog post has a photo of a crow's nest with eggs, but it isn't anywhere as beautiful as this one.

  2. I love the stone in your formal garden!

  3. Now I know what my swedish mother in law gave me...maltese cross! It is just beginning to is slow in our climate...and it needs support after awhile....but I love the vibrant red!
