This is a small garden center at one of the grocery stores I go to. The garden center is a great little piece of plant heaven .. with wonderful staff that truly cares about its clients.
Whether they be people or birds .. I should have made it back sooner to get pictures of the little ones still in the nest. But this morning they decided it was time to stretch their wings.
Mom and dad robin were concerned, but more than willing to create a safe perimeter (well as much as they could ) for the first flights of the three babies ..
See the nest ? ... nothing as touching as an empty one .. so well made .. so loving .. so what that they made their home at a garden center ? what better place could there be really .. close to nature and yet close to the convenience stores ? ;-)
One little guy/gal ? landed in a flower pot which they thought was a good enough trial flight runway .. so they were sticking there for a while.
Best to stretch the wings out just in case though .... it is all brand new and a bit scary.
A little stretch here ... a little stretch there ...
