In Awe of Nature

Spring is my favorite season. It is a reminder of the miracles of life, as is this Robin's nest that Emma and I found in our Arborvitae, or as Emma calls it "Our Forevergreen tree". How can you watch a bare tree or flower, bud and then burst forth with life and not be awed? I hope you'll take the time today to really look around you and appreciate the beauty that Spring offers. I hope you'll slow down from all the pressures and stresses of your life for a moment to really see the show that nature is putting on for us right now.


  1. how cool is that!!!...we found one at our house too!!! our lilac bush..with 4 perfect blue eggs...amazing...thanks for sharing...Lacy

  2. ooh, I love nests, those eggs are beautiful. So far we've had 2 duck nests, we're trying to hatch the eggs under a broody hen! One of our little ducks has gone off and made herself another nest, it's so exciting.
    Isn't nature wonderful, I'm loving this spring, taking lots of little moments to just take it all in.

  3. Lovely pictures!
    I had the same experience while clearing off the patio this week. I noticed the moss...I mean, I REALLY noticed the moss. It's beautiful. I had to get up close and personal and take its picture. :)

  4. Oh I sure do that very day!

    Love your robin nest! Yes you are right Jen spring is just fabulous!

  5. Oh my gosh, I love bird nests. Just look at the color of those eggs. Beautiful. How lucky to have those in a spot where you can see them.
    Have a wonderful day!

  9. That's so cool! Usually I just find the shells on the ground. I love that blue, it my favorite shade of blue.
    Even though our winters are short, I eagerly await spring and do my best to enjoy it since that doesn't last long either LOL!

  17. Jen, you are so right and I completely agree. Nature is amazing and if we all just slow down and enjoy it, I think we'd be happier. The nest you found is so beautiful. It's hard to believe that eggs have colors like those in your nest - like you said, it is awe inspiring to think that nature just does that on its own :o) Thank you Jen.
