So blue

Charlie stopped to sniff something on the ground during our morning walk:

What is this delicate blue object?


At first I thought it was a tiny dyed Easter egg.  But who would dare to dye such delicate eggs?  A quick internet search informed me that it was a robin's egg and that they're naturally this gorgeous shade of blue.  Hubby and I are now keeping our eyes open for a nearby nest.

  1. We have an annual tenant in our gazebo. These robins build their nest on the fan under the gazebo's apex. I have some pictures of the robin babies, if you would like to see what they look like. I'll email them to you.
