The nest is built in a sea of honeysuckle, which grows along the fence of my vegetable garden. I discovered it a few weeks ago. Of course, I took a picture of it. It was an impressive, well-designed home and I wondered who it belonged to.
It wasn’t until I saw Mrs. Robin fly out of it last week when I made the connection. She’s not a little gal. I expected a smaller bird. Mrs. Robin is quite chesty. Usually, she goes for the Arborvitaes not far from the garden. I wonder what made her move over to my garden. Gutsy move. Maybe a little convenient. I’ve been tilling the soil. Mrs. Robin is a smartypants.
These eggs are so beautiful. They are perfect. What makes them so blue?
It all comes back to color and design here at The Right Hue. Benjamin Moore has a paint called “Bird’s Egg, 2051-60.” Great color, but not exactly the same hue as these eggs. Fellow blogger, Debbie, from “One Little Project at a Time,” posted some gorgeous examples of “Bird’s Egg” paint. The images show how well this color works with grays, creams, chartreuse and reds. It’s a wonderful, energetic choice for a girl’s bedroom, too. Love the wallpaper in the last picture. Nice toilet, too.
Stay tuned for updates about Mrs. Robin and her eggs.
