New Inspirations

I spent the weekend in Bennington, VT. While there we took a drive through a large cemetery and admired the stones and landscape. I also got lots of ideas for quilting motifs. Cool, huh?

Ready to Fledge

They grow so fast! One left the nest last night, the other three I imagine will fledge today.
When I was a teenager I raised a Robin, he was brought to us still in quills. We caught gypsy moths and worms to feed him and he lived! His name was Oscar and he spent most of the his youth on my shoulder. By fall he was on his way.

We have a nest of Robins under the eave of our shed. Last year we put up the shelf for a nesting place and to try and keep them form nesting above the dryer vent. I had visions of hard cooked eggs!
Here is momma coming in to feed the 4 little ones.
