We eagerly were anticipating baby birds, peeking occasionally at the nest when Momma wasn't there to view the beautiful blue eggs. The trademark of the Robin eggs.
Gone. All 3 gone. No shells to be found anywhere.
We were all so sad about this, even though we know such is the circle of life. It is just so special to see, and witness nature's blooming all around, and just as disheartening to see nature's circle that takes away potential life. Hopefully Momma Robin had a chance to build another nest, somewhere a bit higher up perhaps, and maybe she will have a few more blue eggs hatch into babies. Perhaps. Or the raccoons, who I suspect were the thieves here, will have a prosperous Spring.
The animals are still out and about, and there are plenty of young rabbits around. Caught this little guy on the side of the road, plenty wary of me and Lady J.
And with all the rain we have had, meaning LOTS and LOTS of rain, it should be a bountiful Spring. Let's hope it is bountiful for us too. That would certainly ease the stress, and make us appreciate our surroundings even more. I hope there is growth all around.
What is your favorite thing about Spring?
