Garden Blogging: Rose Squatters

A robin family built their nest right on the rose trellis by our front door. Last year a family built a nest in the Japanese Maple right in front of our reading room window which was great for our daughter to watch the little babies -- until our cats cleaned out the nest. We came close to felinecide on that day, let me tell you. This family chose a much better location. Our cats are tough decendants of farmyard cats, but I don't think even they could scale this trellis into the nest protected by the New Dawn's aggressive thorns! Look closely to Momma Robin's left (your right) and you'll see two beaks poking out from under her protection. Pretty cool!
