Lovely photo like your welcome sign too.

Well captured TT....

Isn't it funny how we all adore a little Robin Red Breast, even though he is an absolute thug and a terroriser of all the other birds. So cute though, I love them too, always happy to see them in my garden.

1 Oct, 2011

 

very good terra :-))

1 Oct, 2011

 

Thanks folks ...
The robin posed nicely for me, making it easier to take the pic. I've never before had the opportunity to photograph a robin close up, so I was thrilled when this perky little bird perched on one of my rocks.

what a lovely photo,their wonderful little helpers, the
garden & gardening wouldn't be the same without our birds, welldone Terratoonie.lol smurf x

Hi Smurf... Thanks.
The little garden birds are a delight, aren't they.
This robin was very bold ! :o) x

2 Oct, 2011

 

Hi TT...don't they just love the Gardener, always know when we're about to dig or change things, lots of goodies for them...Brilliant shot by the way, and I agree it would make an excellent Xmas card....

2 Oct, 2011

 

Lovely pic. I haven't seen a robin all Summer but this last week we've had a regular customer eating the mealworms. It's lovely to see them.

2 Oct, 2011

 

Hello Crissue ... Thanks.
Yes, amazing how when we're digging, the robins appear suddenly, and are eager to eat up grubs or worms ...

Hi Linda ...
Yes, the robins become more evident as autumn approaches, don't they. :o)

2 Oct, 2011

 

*s* with what looks like holly in the background, there's the design for your Christmas cards!

I do like the rock he's standing on; what kind is it, do you know? the colour differences are striking.

2 Oct, 2011

 

Hi Fran...
It was helpful of the robin to perch is such a suitable place, by the holly ... it wasn't Christmas weather though ... more like mid-summer.... hot .. hot .. hot... lovely :o)))

2 Oct, 2011

 

lol normally, within two days of the snow clearing away, someone round here is bound to complain about the heat! Of course, too much of anything isn't necessarily good for one, but I can take a lot of the current weather.

Maybe you or a friend could tweak the photo for a "seasonal" feel?

2 Oct, 2011

 

Speak to Pixi TT...she'll tell you how to paint on it...just the way you want it...:)))

2 Oct, 2011

 

i love this photo i ad a robin that use to come in my garden but avent seen him for a while i keep lookin out for him

2 Oct, 2011

 

Thanks Crissue ...

Hi Jackie ... I hope your robin returns ...
They usually appear when you've been digging the soil, as they try to spot the worms... :o)

2 Oct, 2011

 

They have started to sing for their territories around here and first thing in the morning sounds lovely. About seven I opened the curtains to see a large flock of geese flying low calling to each other flying over our bungalow....super!

3 Oct, 2011

 

Lovely looking guy , lovely picture :)

3 Oct, 2011

 

Thanks Sue...
..the robin posed so nicely for me :o)

3 Oct, 2011

 

A really stunning shot Terra - he looks very young too. Hasnt got a middle aged spread yet lol!

3 Oct, 2011

 

tell you what, Terratoonie, if you could make this picture into a small wall poster, you'd have at least one person queueing up to buy a copy!

Of course, there'd be quite a few other photos on GoY that I'd like to have on my wall, but this has to be close to the very top of the list.

lol, a new section in GoY? Poster-shop?

4 Oct, 2011

4 Oct, 2011

7 Oct, 2011

 

Hi Grandmage... The robin likes the bird bath at the end of our new pebble garden ... and I'm making a note to buy treats for robins .. :o)

22 Oct, 2011

 

Hi Holly ...

That's good news... my robin has been around... keeps posing really nicely when I haven't got my camera handy...Lol.

22 Oct, 2011

 

Thats always the way isnt it... :0)

26 Oct, 2011

 

I think the robin must have read my comment about the camera, because he posed over and over again for my latest blog.. really obliging ... Lol. :o)

26 Oct, 2011

 

yes you've got some lovely pics of him on there... :)

26 Oct, 2011

 

Thank you :o)))

26 Oct, 2011

 

Wonderful sunny, autumn days digging over the moist soil, with the liquid golden song of a robin from the nearby tree. For me, 100% total contentment. I think he has the best song of any bird, nightingale included.

27 Oct, 2011

 

Hi Gattina..
Lovely comment ..
The robin is such good company ...
so alert .. knows exactly where I've been digging .. :o)

27 Oct, 2011

 

I can hardly believe this. When I wrote my last comment, I was thinking back to days in our UK garden more than 6 years ago now. We rarely see robins here - mostly due to the cats, I expect, and the fact that this is agricultural land round here with few gardens. It made me terribly nostalgic. Yesterday afternoon - a gorgeous, woodsmokey, golden day, I was digging over the rockery where I have been tearing out vinca roots, and I thought I was hearing things: a robin's song - liquid gold. I couldn't see him for some time, and then, there he was, high in the cherry tree. We stood still for some minutes, then down he came and continued to sing for a full five minutes maybe two yards away from me. Eventually I had to leave, I was crying so much. Coincidence? Do robins read blogs?

29 Oct, 2011

 

Oh, that was lovely for you, Gattina...
My robin keeps returning... and seems to like to pose for my camera..Lol..
I hope your robin visits you again :o)))

29 Oct, 2011

 

That was so lovely Gattina, brought tears to my eyes too.. We've just started to get an assortment of Birds including Robins visiting our garden, and what a welcome sight they are....
Hi Terra, you have a little friend there...:)))

29 Oct, 2011

 

Hi Sue ..
glad you are getting visits from garden birds ..
yes ... I've never met such a friendly robin. :o)))

29 Oct, 2011

29 Oct, 2011

17 Feb, 2012

17 Feb, 2012

 

precious robin :)

14 Feb, 2013

 

Thanks Floralhead...
that was just an odd piece of rock being sold at a garden centre ...
... as with you, I was amazed by the colours and decided to buy it !

14 Feb, 2013

 

I really want oneLOL

14 Feb, 2013

14 Feb, 2013

 

Wish I could email you one of these rocks.. Lol.
