Blue Monday - Tweet Tweet

Happy Monday to everyone! First day of Summer vacation for Mr. Dumpling. Routines will change (mostly for me) but change can be good...right? Today, I'm participating in Blue Monday over at Smiling Sally's. Be sure to check out her page and all attending her party!


I absolutely adore this time of year. Flowers blooming, trees are green again, grass to be mowed (yes, I love to mow) and....bluebirds start new families! We have four birdhouses and we are already on our second batch of babies. If only OnlySon felt that same desire but I digress. He doesn't read by blog so I should be safe there.


Here's a few pics of the gorgeous BLUE eggs. There is just nothing like the color of a bluebird egg is it?

















I try not to open the lid too often. I don't want to scare MamaBird. However, this is what they do when you open it. They sing for their supper! Hmm, wonder if I could train Mr. Dumpling to do that?







There is always one really BIG baby that does not want to leave the nest. I know MamaBird probably has to push that one out of the nest! Sometimes Mother's have to do that...with lots of love of course!




I'm a huge fan of John Audubon. He has a lovely print of the Bluebird I'll share with you.





I'm always on the lookout for Audubon prints. I have a set of plates I will share later and I would love some prints to display with them. If you know of a good site to buy prints...let me know!


Have a blessed week!

Oh wow, lovely bird babies. The nest of our robin at our porch was blow away by the strong wind last night, I felt so bad.

You have beautiful blues this week!

Hope you can find time to peek at my blues, thanks a bunch!
