Robins

Robins decided to build a nest in our pergola despite our constant presence. We all got along famously from May 22 when we first spotted Mama sitting in the nest to June 10 when we noticed a decided lack of activity at the nest. Empty!!

Although I lived in Ontario for 25 years, Vancouver Island has always been home to me. 15 years ago we bought a "little house on the prairie" in Brant County, just outside Hamilton, Ancaster and Brantford, Ontario. Over the years, with a lot of sweat, determination, luck, skill, frustration, elation and endurance we turned that 2 acre clay field into an amazing oasis...as chronicled in Through Leaves. When we recently retired we immediately came back 'home' to the Coast. We have settled in beautiful central Vancouver Island at the edge of Nanaimo on 1/2 acre with a mature shrub garden adjacent to a ravine that winds its way up to Westwood Lake and eventually Mount Benson. Although the garden is mature and gorgeous...it is very overgrown, too homogenous for my liking and needs my personal stamp! I am dizzy with the possibilities!!!
