Blue Monday

It's Blue Monday
and I have no blue in my post,
but I am blue inside.

Last week I showed a bird nest i found
in our back yard while weeding.
It was right on the ground next to a raspberry bush.
It had 4 eggs in it.

I pushed some weeds back up around it after i saw it,
but not good enough I guess.
Something found the nest.
Two of the eggs are gone,
another on the ground, and only 1 left in the nest.
I'm expecting the mother is long gone,
and we will not see any baby birdies like i had hoped.
I will keep watching it, but....

Go on over to Smiling Sally's for happier Blue Mondays.

Thanks Sally for hosting!!

Awwww, I'm sorry about the nest, Barbara Jean, but maybe the mother will come back for the one little egg.

Happy Blue Monday!

That is sad. I always hope to understand the Greater Plan would explain what happens in nature, but fall short while here on earth. I'm in no hurry to have it explained at the Golden Gate though. I seem to be aging fast enough!

Poor mama bird. So sad.

Oh no :(
I am so sorry about the little nest.
But there is always a chance the mother could come back and lay more eggs :)
Happy Blue Monday.
Blessings to you .

Oh, what a shame. I can see why you're feeling blue.

Oh, how sad. Our little babies just left the nest. It is so sad to lose any of them. Ours was a robins nest. I read that only 40% survive and of those, they only live an average of 2 years. Life is fragile and to be cherished!
