Front Porch Weaving
I have been planning to set up a loom on the covered front porch this summer. It is shady and on a hot summer day one of the only places to be outside in the heat (that is unless I am floating down the Kettle River.) Inside is cool, but I do like to get outside a bit as well. I had a loom outside one summer years ago and really enjoyed it.
I began washing the porch, pollen had dusted everything with a fine coat of yellow. As I came round the corner of the house with my mop and bucket, I could hear two robins sounding very agitated in a tree next to the porch. I thought they must have a nest close by. I didn’t know how close!
This put a damper on my loom plans as the parents didn’t like it at all when I was on the porch. Until this afternoon. This morning I carefully went out to take a photo of the 3 baby robins to find mum (or dad) blocking the view. I think this is an adult, yesterday the three little ones looked much smaller. I would have to come back later.
This afternoon I went out to get my photo to find the nest empty.
I guess my loom plans can proceed now.
