Since this blog is about life, today I'd like to show you what the universe has dropped on our front porch. Well, about 20 feet from our front porch.

Evidently, everything went so well the last time, that our local robin family has set up their nest once again in the crotch of the white pine in our garden. They have a fertile yard to hunt for worms in and the protection of our little guard dog to keep the predators away. Again, the nest is only about 3 feet off the ground. They never really mind when we are in the yard, gardening or even mowing the grass. Often I will find Pugsley sitting right under the nest in the shade of the tree. He protects them from the other birds and anything else that may wander in the yard. They seem right at home, as they should.
