It’s growing season

The spring has brought many changes to our yard; fast growing grass, mysterious plants, beautiful flowers, rebellious weeds – there are so many living things that we tend to not pay attention to. Plants grow slowly but steadily and despite how slow they grow it is amazing how quick they get out of control. La primavera ha traido muchos cambios a nuestro patio; el pasto crece rapido, plantas misteriosas, hermosas flores, malezas rebeldes – hay muchas cosas vivientes que tendemos a no ponerles atencion. Las plantas crecen lento pero seguro y sin importar lo lento que crecen es impresionante lo rapido que se pieder el control del patio. 

While we were working around the shrubs outside our kitchen window, a protective little robin aggressively let us know that plants are not the only growing things in the yard. Actually the little bird didn’t scare either Leslie or me, she (or… we think is a momma) scared the crap out of a contractor. We just heard the scream and saw the bird flying out like a bullet…when we went to check out the area, we found out this little surprise: Mientras trabajabamos en los matorrales afuera de la ventana de la cocina, un zorzal muy portector de lo suyo nos dijo de manera muy agresiva que las plantas no eran lo unico que crecia en el patio. La verdad es que el pajaro no asusto ni a Leslie ni a mi, ella (o…pensamos que es la mama pajaro) asusto a cagarse al jardinero. Nosotros solo escuchamos el grito y vimos al pajaro salir como bala…cuando fuimos a revisar el area, nos encotnramos con esta sorpresa:

We are so excited to see the little birdies grow! The nest is placed perfectly for us to peek into every time we get home. We are trying to keep track of their growth, but we only look at them when the parents are not around (we don’t want to stress them out, they have plenty of stress going on collecting yummy bugs for their little babies). Estamos muy contentos de ver pajaritos crecer! El nido esta hecho en el lugar perfecto para nosotros poder mirarlo cada vez que llegamos a casa. Estamos tratando de seguir el crecimiento de los pichones, pero solo los miramos cuando los papas no estan (no queremos estresarlos, tienen suficiente trabajo tratando de colectar ricos bichitos para sus bebes).

Let hope these little birds get to grow into big strong robins like their parents…in the mean time, they are welcome to enjoy their little bird home at Los Rodriguez mansion. Esperemos que los pajaritos creceran y se convertiran en zorzales fuertes y grandes como sus papas….por mientras, son bienvenidos a disfrutar su nidito en la mansion Rodriguez.

  1. Loved reading about your robin and seeing the pictures. Yesterday I watched for a long time as a robin flew back and forth gathering twigs and dead mulch from my rose garden to build her nest. I was so amazed by her ability to carry great mouths full of the stuff and still fly. My what perseverance and how amazing is God’s design for all his creatures!
