No Place Like Home

This is the Robin musical egg.It opens to reveal a Golden Robin on gold leafs.It plays there is no place like home.

A picture of a Robin over looking a country river with a bridge in the foreground...

Art imitates nature.Here is the Robin today in the garden feeding on the bird table.Cat took the photo when I was at work. She is a budding nature photographer.All my recent shots were blurry.
I watched a documentary about Cuckoo's after work today.They are not as sweet as I thought, doppleganging other birds to raise their young and lobbing out the other chicks to their death..
A weekend off beckons, this Robin has made his home in my garden...

Today was the day of birds. I was able to take some fun photos today as the birds stopped by my feeders for some yummies. Stop by and take a peak if you get the chance. I adore your blog!

Happy Friday

What an extra-special Christmas present that is! It's beautiful. I gave my mum something on a similar theme a couple of years ago. It's a Robin figurine that opens up and there is a pendant inside with a tiny Robin on it. So sweet. :)

Brilliant photo too! Cheeky Robin...he looks like he's posing for the camera. :D
