The weather here has been dreadful, rain, more rain and high winds for over a week.  A tree blew over knocking a little robin's nest onto the ground and breaking all the eggs except this one which we found  on the ground cold and abandoned.  I really love robin's eggs, the colour is perfect and secretly I was happy to bring it into the house and place it on the windowsill by the sink which kind of collects little curiosities I like to look at while I'm washing dishes.  The only problem is doesn't it resemble those little chocolate mini eggs with the candy shell you can buy at Easter?  Hopefully none of the starving teenage boys that hang out at my house pop it in their mouths....that would be bad...but it would make a good story.

  1. I always think that it's so sad to see those little blue eggshells on the ground after a storm.
    Hope the boys don't get too hungry!!!
