$10.50 and a Bird

Do you happen to remember my lovely front door wreath I made for a mere $10.50?

It must have been the same time I was hanging this wreath outside, or literally the next day, robins started trying to build a nest on our porch light which hangs right by our front door. We realized it because we could see straw all over the ground outside the two windows that flank the door.

Those robins tried for a good three days to build that nest. We thought they finally succeeded, then they knocked it down the next day and decided on what they thought was better spot.

Can you see her perched up there? I'm assuming it's the her of the pair. I don't know if there are eggs there yet or not.

There was all the straw the first day they decided to put it there, and Hubby was not willing to move it. The next day they bombarded it and my door with mud. Hubby informed me it was for stability.

I'd really like to know what that bird did with the white gerbera that was right there in that spot. I'm guessing it might be a little stained by that mud if it's even still there.

You know that wreath is never going to be the same again.

You know it's pathetic when I'm miffed about a plastic white flower.

Somehow, it doesn't surprise me that this happened to you. And it was such a pretty wreath!
I think this can turn into a home school lesson though - pretty cheap at $10.50!

I think the bird's nest makes the wreath complete! I have a little fake one on my fall wreath and I just think it's so cool you have a real one.

Well, you know I love birds! Some people hate it when they get a nest on the front door. I always love it...but it does get messy when the babies come! ha.
