My Sister's Wreath

My sister Jude made this beautiful wreath using vines from her own back yard.  She added silk and dried flowers and tied it with a gorgeous ribbon.  When I moved into the cottage, it was the first thing I hung up. It went perfect on the front porch. 

One spring day I came home and realized there was an addition added to Jude's beautiful wreath...a robin's nest.  The babies were born a couple of week's ago and this Saturday, the last one flew away.  Talk about empty nest syndrome! 

It was amazing to watch and they seemed to accept me as part of the community.  Adult robins perched strategically in all the surrounding trees and came to the rescue of the babies whenever they thought there might be when a crow came too close.

The last hesitant baby hung out by my chair, working up the courage to fly.  It took alot of persuasion from both me and the other robins but he finally did it!  So cool!
