One of the pleasures of summer is surely eating outside. As soon as the temperature rises and the sun shines we like to take long leisurely lunches on the terrace and today was no exception.
We had a simple lunch - minestrone soup, bread, cheese, olives and a glass of wine. While we were eating I noticed a robin with a grub in her beak perched on the empty bottle of an old wine rack set into the terrace wall. She disappeared behind the rack before reappearing a few minutes later. It would appear that there is a nest with young in the recess of the wall. This is the first time that we have noticed robins nesting in the garden. I hope we don’t disturb them with our lunchtime sessions.
