sweet nests

one of my favourite things about wandering
 through the orchards in winter
 is discovering birds nests.  
it is kind of like a treasure hunt and brings me such joy.
 there is something about them that is so charming. 
simple and complicated at the same time.
 a sweet reminder of last spring and summer,
 their little nests are so perfect and rugged and beautiful! 
i marvel at how resourceful the birds are.

i am so happy they love the farm too…

i love all the twine in this nest.

there were thirty something robins 
in the delicious orchard earlier this week! 
soon we will find eggs in new nests. 
looking  forward to spring!
warm farm hugs,
