Wake-up Call(er) .....

Since it is now warm enough to sleep with the windows open the Robin's are my new wake-up call .... much better than the alarm clock buzzer ....

And they sing me to sleep at night too! What a delight.

We have a plot in our local community garden here in St. John's and one of the things we get to enjoy is a relatively large number of Robins. There were about 20 going around the various gardens earlier this week. Them and their songs are very, very definitely one of the perks of the place.

A lovely song to wake up too. I am afraid most mornings it is the killdeers at the pond out front that wake me and they jangle a nerve or 2...lol..very nice picture Laura..Jean

I love, love, love the sounds of robins. I find that their song changes after a month or so, and then, by August - no more robins! so enjoy every moment while you can. I will, thanks for the reminder.
