A few minutes later we heard the familiar peeping of a hungry baby from the privet hedge across the drive way and Rod went out and observed a parent/child lecture wit much peeping from baby and much melodic response from "Mamma" Robin -- and our daily nature study of the life and growth of robins is complete.
Fortunately, the rose of sharon has bloomed and our lonely front window will soon be filled with hummingbirds stopping by for breakfast.
Life is, indeed, good.
