Life is always bursting out on Chickadee Farm. This is our second batch of barn robins to hatch. The first crew was composed of two hatchlings. I thought we had three in this second crew. Nope - if you look closely, you'll see four. What a crowd! What fascinates me is that if you go anywhere near the nest, they freeze, as if they were statues and not real birds. Nature protecting her own. Amazing.
Working in the garden is incredibly nourishing. Bill and I were covered in dirt and muck by the end of yesterday. Didn't matter one bit. The Secret Garden is coming along just beautifully.
