Every tree should have one!


Every tree should have one!

This Robin sang to me while I was putting my new plants in this afternoon. Lovely to hear him.

Thanks, Tt, he wouldn't leave the tree to come down for the slugs I found beneath the leaves. He just sang and sang for almost an hour! Ooh, I saw a bird checking out the nesting box early this morning, not sure if it was a Bluetit or a Great Tit. I hope we have some this year, they didn't like the 'des res' last year. : o (((

oh how lovely, when i saw your picture i just had to hear the robin ~ so i put this web site:
http://sounds.bl.uk/View.aspx?item=022M-W1CDR0001376-1100V0.xml
onto another tab and played the robin song while looking at your picture!
the world would be a sadder place without a robins song i think.

I agree with you, beautiful, and what plants have you been putting in this afternoon, we would have to move a ton of snow here first,

LOL, Yorkshire, they're on my blog 'Thinking ahead' and all but the Senecio are in the ground now! Plenty of rain last night/ very early morning but no snow down here. The Senecio will be planted in the front, that involves cutting through the membrane beneath the gravel, not in the mood to do that today! How much snow do you have?

quite a lot on the lawns and flower beds, far to much to try gardening, at least the road has been cleared so we can get in and out if we wish, just wish it would go away, roll on spring,

Think of it as insulation, Yorkshire, better than a sharp frost! . . . . . . San, he just kept on singing and singing which was such a pleasure to hear. : o )

"When the Red Red Robin goes bob bob bobbing along" , not as good as hearing a Robin sing Shirley, but I tried my best for you. :o)) Lovely photo.

Well, I didn't expect this Robin to prove so popular ... lol! Littlelegs ... I know why you're singing that song! : o )))

he's like a little choir boy ~ not sure if i mean robin or LL?

9 Jan, 2011

 

You been peeping Sticki?

9 Jan, 2011

 

peep peep!

i think thats robin singing?

9 Jan, 2011

 

LOL. I started writing a blog yesterday, saved it and all that, but I can't seem to find it, sorry Shirley for using your thread.

9 Jan, 2011

 

Bloomer, I forgot to say thankyou for putting 'my' Robin on to your favourites! It's about 10am and I've just seen a Blackbird, Robin, Mistle Thrush and Woodpigeon in the garden, but, best of all, a Bluetit checking out the nesting box. Fingers crossed he'll take a liking to it this year! : o )))
LOL, Littlelegs, no worries, blogs always get hijacked, makes it more interesting! Hope you find the saved blog. : o )))

9 Jan, 2011

 

sorry from me too shirley ~ im just as guilty.
im just wondering what LL thinks ive been peeping at tho?

9 Jan, 2011

 

No apology needed, Sticki, I like it when a blog/photo goes off in different directions! Perhaps LL thought you could see him singing in the choir somehow ... lol!
Ooh, just went to do your quiz, somebody has answered many already so they're on the screen, should have Pm'd them maybe? Never mind, I really must sign off here now, much to do today, catch you later. : o )

9 Jan, 2011

 

yes i saw but im not saying if they are right or not? i should have said to do PM?
i like it when a blog of mine goes off on a new path but i know some people dont.
i think its like taking a new path through the woods or garden ~ you never know where it will lead.
