Happy Blue Monday...Momma said "SQUAAAAAAK!"

Happy Blue Monday to everyone.  I am linking with SmilingSally today.  Be sure to follow my link to visit the other Blue Monday participants...when you are done here... *s*..

It was a beauuuutiful weekend at the cottage.  It was HOT and humidity hit now and again but so did a nice breeze...now and again.   It was relaxing his weekend.  We barely cooked for one which is unusual. 

We ordered pizza and wings one night, grabbed a burger one afternoon and were invited out for dinner with friends Saturday.  It was a fun evening.  We DID have brekky at home Sunday morning and then it was time to leave.

I wanted to share the story on our window box.  We have a pretty little window box outside the shop. 
Nothing was different with it after our July 1st and 4th celebrations last weekend.  On Friday when I went to water it.....can you see what's in there?
The pictures are taken at a distance so they are not clear.....
Well I went inside to tell Marc and said I was going to get an up close picture.
Just as I was getting ready for the big "aim".... from behind me came this loud "SQUUAAAAK!" and this is the picture I snapped!!!!  I was so startled.

I told Marc "he" had better take the picture....
This is what was in the flower bed...2 pretty BLUE robin's eggs uncovered for a moment because momma was getting her dinner...

or rather....SHE was behind us up there watching..... *s*....

I recovered....and I hope the flowers will survive because we really can't water them now....for a while...

Momma sits there so proudly in her nest, hiding behind the greenery with only her tail sticking out from behind it...and a little red "vest" showing.  Do you have birds in your garden flowers?

I hope you had a wonderful weekend....one week before I start 3 weeks vacation...yay...

How fun to have the nest right there so you can see it!! I am expecting more pictures of the baby birds when they hatch. So fun to see nature at its best.

Judi: What is our neighborhood coming to? We had robins in the gutters....should I call them the Penthouse robins and yours the studio apartment robins? What a delightful picture. We will keep an eye on the nest and step quietly.

I love the color of robin eggs. I visited your shop and love the fish! I live on a lake and they would be so fun to serve. Blessings, Debbie

Hi Judi,We are finally home for keeps for the rest of the summer. I am so glad to be home again. I have missed my friends so much. It is unbelievable how much my blogging friends mean to me. Blogging and FB has opened a new world to me and no matter how often I have to slow down on visiting, I will always be back.

I'm so glad you had fun at your cottage. it sounds delightful. We have had nests in our hanging flowers a few times and you can't water for sure. I think the eggs are so pretty in blue. I wonder if they are robins eggs.

Happy Blue Monday.
Hugs, Jeanne

Oh Judi,
What a sweet post. Unfortunately most of the birds around here are big scary crows which end up scaring most little birdies away but once in a while I can spot a sweet little humming bird or two. Thank you for sharing and thank you for stopping by for a visit. Hope you come again soon. Have a wonderful day.

Hugs and Kisses,
♥Ana

Hi Judi, I loved seeing your pictures. I hope you get some of the chicks when they hatch. We had robins nesting in a box attached to our kitchen wall this year. They are such dear little birds and they worked so hard feeding all those babies. A friend told me that robins in England are a lot smaller than yours. You must be so excited for your holiday. Have fun.
