Downtime at the Garden Center, Robin’s nest update…

Rain is forecasted today and all the Garden Center customers have scattered leaving us with a little time to breath. The mad rush to get the vegetable plants and other garden supplies has come to all but a screeching halt.
Our new mascot, now known as the GC Robin, is also enjoying the extra peace and quiet. We’ve moved most of the flower baskets out of the greenhouse, leaving her’s with a note attached that the basket is occupied and is not for sale.

It’s a little tricky keeping her Fuchsia alive though. I’m able to keep it watered by trickling the hose into the side of the basket without getting the nest wet. Of course this pisses her off and she yells at me, but soon gets over it.

Garden Center Robin Strikes Again!

This time in an expensive hanging fuchsia! This year it’s been a battle to keep this one robin from building nests in the plants. I lost this round! 
Her first nest was in a plant tray full of Irises. 
Don’t worry, once she’s laid the eggs, we leave her alone. She manages to raise three broods a year during our four month season.
