… and the melodious little birds in my gardens …

This winter, the robin has sung all day, every day …

… an absolute joy :o)))

……………………………………………………………………

Sing … sing a song …

……………………………………………………………..

Sing out loud … sing out strong …

…………………………………………………………….

Sing of good things, not bad …
Sing of happy, not sad …

……………………………………………………………..

Coo … coo your song …

Make it friendly …
to last your whole life long …

……………………………………………………………..

Don’t worry …
your voice is beautiful …
It’s one that we love to hear …

……………………………………………………………..

Just sing … sing a song …

……………………………………………………………..

Chirp … chirp your song …
Let the world chirp along …

……………………………………………………………..

Sing up high … sing down low …

……………………………………………………………..

Sing in sun or in snow …

……………………………………………………………..

Sing, sing a song …

Sing at bath-time …
to prove there’s nothing wrong …

……………………………………………………………..

Don’t worry …
your song is beautiful …
It’s one that we love to hear …

……………………………………………………………..

So, sing …
sing your song …

Singing and smiling here Terra, the Carpenters were and still are a huge favourite, some great photographs here, most of the birds content to sit and listen whilst surveying the scene whilst your little robin is warbling along at full throttle and obviously loving it as well, lol, nice to see Crocus looking as handsome as ever........

Hi TT , Lovely to see your birds SINGing A SONG FOR YOU.
You know what that cheeky Robin is thinking WE’VE ONLY JUST BEGUN because they WON’T LAST A DAY WITHOUT YOU.
You know IT’S GOING TO TAKE SOME TIME to get over this! But most of all we all love to be CLOSE TO YOU X
