When The Red Red Robin...Comes Bob Bob Bobbing Along....





While sitting on the beach deck, at the cottage on Saturday...

Enjoying the late afternoon sun...

After a splendid day of raking...clipping...raking...carrying...walking...

This most handsome specimen, put on a lovely show for us...

He was closer to the cottage, so I zoomed in...

He was posing on the platform feeder...

Ever vigilant of his/her surroundings...

Listening...watching...

Suddenly...he/she jumped down...bob bob bobbed across the lawn...

Came to rest in this position...

Aren't Robins just an incredible resilient Bird??

I never tire of their arrivals in the late Winter and early Spring...

Their beautiful songs as they grab the last nibble late into the evening...

I must get the BIG birdbath out this weekend at the cottage...

Because the second favorite thing that a Robin loves to do...

Is...

Take a bath.....♥️ 

                                          ~~~~~~~~~~~

The beautiful weather continues here this Tuesday...

Thank you all for all your kind comments about Miss V and her seeds...

She brings joy everytime she is here...we are so grateful to be able to share our lives with her...♥️♥️♥️

Hope you are all haveing a great day...and enjoying the weather...

I am almost finished the "Beachy Afghan" for my daughter Lissa's b'day...

Good thing...'cause it is in 1 week! 

It looks pretty nice...working on a border edge right now...

Will show you all...once I have given it to her!!

Tomorrow is Wednesday...and you know what that means!

I think some baking is in order...although, it will be another great day...

Perhaps we will think of an outing with Miss V...that would be nice!!


                    Enjoy your evening...

                          Cheers!   :o)

  7. We have that song here too . . . it is Bristol City football team's song.
    Your Robbins are much larger than our's but their behaviour seems similar.
    Beautiful photography.
    Enjoy Wednesday . . . :)

  12. I always look forward to your lovely photos and "storyline." I think Miss V. might be ready for an outing with her nana and grandpa to Ripley's Aquarium this summer, what do you think? Such a fun place to visit! Lots of excitement here today, I had a letter to the editor published in the Nat'l Post! Enjoy Miss V. tomorrow and take care...

  13. Lovely robin pictures. I always get excited when I see my first robin because they show up so much earlier than other birds (and they are easy to spot!). What's on the menu for tomorrow? -Jenn

  14. Robins are always so handsome and regal looking. Your robin looks so sleek too! We have a pair of chubby robins nesting above the drainpipe coming off the roof. Maybe they are finding a fattening supply of worms in my yard. I love their song too, and I remember how loud they were when I was young and they would be singing before the sun came up in the summer (way back when I would actually sleep in!). I hope you're enjoying your V-Day!

  18. The robins are so happy now that the snow is gone.
    They are a beautiful bird and I am always glad to see them bobbing about.
    Is Miss V a fan of birds as well as flowers?

  19. Robins always mean spring is truly here! Wonderful photos - it was like he was posing just for you! Scrolled down to see Miss V and her seeds. Can she get any more adorable? It's so nice that you are teaching her gardening. Sweet, cherished moments. <3 xx Karen

    It's in my mind for good . . .
