We missed the first of the three baby robins leaving the nest, but the second one just wasn't quite ready to fly and made his way to a spot under a tree where mama and papa tended him/her
I kept missing the best pictures of course......like the feeding.....
They sure grow up fast!
The last one........gone now as I write this post.
Poor little robin....walkin', walkin', walkin' to Missourri.....remember that song? LOL, I'm dating myself! Can you see that tiny little robin making his way across the grass? That little dot?
Off he went and stayed at the edge of the flower bed for about an hour....when I next checked, he was gone, probably to the back of the yard in the bit of bush, hiding in the underbrush until he could use his little wings. I could hear mama and papa, chirping at him over the course of the day and evening.
While we're at the flower bed, a few pictures for you.
The heat and humidity we've had lately and rain on and off have really pushed the blooms!
The sad thing is, then we will be on the downward side of summer!
I was very happy with the way the flowers planted in those big plastic swans spread and really made a very colorful display.
I will definitely plant these low bushy zinnias again next year. They have really been looking good. You can see some yellow ones in one of the pictures above this one. They are great!
SORRY, if I haven't been visiting, I really miss dropping by to your blogs and seeing what you've all been up to. I will catch up one of these days, meanwhile, I'll at least try to keep on posting!
