Saturday, one of the little Studio Robins left the
nest and was hopping around the farmhouse
while taking flying lessons from mama!
Sunday morning I took photos
of the last two...
I'm thinking maybe Saturday's baby got pushed out
of the nest...looks pretty crowded!
By Sunday afternoon the nest was empty...
Found the little fellows perched on the Arbor Vitae
just a few feet from their nest...what a face!
They quickly got the courage to make their
maiden flight down to the driveway...
Mama Robin was ready and waiting to take over!
So sad to look in and see an empty nest...
They sure mature at lightning speed!
While out running errands,
I couldn't resist treating myself
to a couple of big beautiful Boston Ferns...
One for the front porch and the other for the back porch.
My grandmother and mother always had
Boston Ferns, I love how nicely they fit into
my old wicker plant stands!
I'm also very fond of "Hens & Chicks"...
These Hens & Chicks came already potted...found them
at Wal~Mart for only $11.88.
Years ago my husband found this neat old
stone artifact down by our pond...
The center is hollow making it perfect to plant
I'll share some more or my plantings on Friday!
How about a little sneak peek of
my antique reproduction sampler
Border number two is a brown branch with
endless little olive leaves...I have the top and right
side all complete!
Half way there...
Can't wait to finish...so I can start on the final border!
While stitching away,
my thoughts turned to Lydia Barnes
the little nine year old girl that stitched
this back in 1827...I wonder how long it took
her to stitch the original?
Weekly Soul Food...
To every thing there is a season,
and a time to every purpose under the heaven.
After spending two hours in the dentist
chair earlier today, my Novocaine has finally
worn off and I feel like myself again...yay!
Looking forward to getting a final crown in
two weeks...totally worth the sore jaw!
Wishing YOU a most splendid week ahead!
