About The Sweetest Thing Ever!!

So I'd been noticing that there are a pair of robins building a nest under the deck this year. We usually have a few in the yard, but never under the deck. Anyway, yesterday I decided to creep under to see if there were any eggs or babies yet...just a quick peek. When I got up close to the nest, I gasped!!...

These sweet birds have spun fine stands of silver tinsel into their nest!!!

I seriously had tears in my eyes! I think nature is just amazing! I'd love to know where they got the tinsel from. There aren't any eggs yet, but I'll keep you updated. These are sure to be special little birds right? I think I might put the nest in one of my big glass apothecary jars when they're all done with it.

When I was done taking pics of the nest, I walked to the front yard. This is what the Flowering Crab Tree in the front yard looks like right now. And that's how blue the sky was yesterday!

 Crazy...I didn't mess with the colors of these pics a bit. Don't some days just take your breath away?

Bless the birds and the pretty pink blossoms...and you. :)

Today I'm linking up with PINK SATURDAY over at "How Sweet The Sound".
See lots of wonderful pink things over there!


  1. really sweet post I love how you are enjoying the simple things.

  2. Beautiful photos!! Hope you have a wonderful Sunday!

  3. Yes, nature is such a beautiful canvas! The bird nest is very sweet. (But be careful, Robins carry mites.) Maybe you could put the nest in a big zip-lock bag when the birds are done, and then keep it in the freezer for a few days before putting it in your house or handle it.
    Have fun watching the family of Robins!
    The blossoms are pretty.

  4. Bless you too, for sharing such beauty. I often look at the beauty around me and wonder if God created such breath taking beauty here, imagine the splendor Heaven must hold :)

  5. I have collected a few nests, that have fallen from our trees, for my daughter to display in her classroom. Robins are amazing at weaving and perfecting their nests. Your pictures are beautiful, especially the flowering tree. Thank you for sharing.


  6. Even the birds like to "pretty up" their place. Such a nice story and your pics are beautiful.

  7. So sweet! I just think that is the most precious thing! :)

    Hope you have a great week!
