Another Sure Sign of Spring

Every evening we check the grape vines to see if the buds are opening yet…anticipating “bud-break”.  This evening we noticed a Robin’s nest for the first time.  Not even hidden a little bit, but out in plain site, on our first trellis post of the first row of grapes. We were either oblivious to this nest, or we have a speed-nest-builder in the grape patch.  Regardless – Robin’s are a sure sign of Spring!
