Red Robin


What a wonderful day it’s been. I sat out on my hammock seat and was so pleased to have two visitor, my wee friends the robins. They are almost tame and come to within inches of my feet and I had not seen them for a few weeks and thought they had deserted us. I have asked my son to try to get a photo of them but so far he has not been successful, but he will keep trying. Then did a bit of deadheading, then a snooze and then I looked in the mirror and noticed that something else needed pruning and cutting back i.e my eyebrows so I am now tamed, but will not enclude a photo of same.

Sounds like you`ve had a nice relaxing day Breda, our robin has also returned and the goldfinches are around as well, mind you they are finding food on the grass verges not the feeders but they do come to the baths for their drink..
Had a chuckle at your pruning the eyebrow shrubs. LOL...
