It looks like our robin from last year has taken up residence in her old nest again. We never got around to taking it down last fall, and when I walked around to the side of the house I scared her (and me).

When I was over there Sunday weeding the flower beds, I flushed her away from the nest a few times. Since she was never gone long, and never went too far away I am guessing she's got eggs in there. I haven't gotten out my "mirror on a stick" yet, but will probably go check it out this week.

I did weed out the flower beds... at least two of them. The tulips are mostly done, and I have some iris getting close to bloom. I have fought back the spread of the lilacs by clipping off about two dozen runners. I can see the ground cover (forget-me-nots) now.
