Sweetheart, there are roses coming through the window!!!!!







The Culprits....sitting so silently!!!



M'mm I thought..... the bathroom has a green underwater glow about it and what is growing through the window frame........oh yes the rose needs some urgent pruning.
The rose still looks very large and very healthy this evening, why!!! because as we started to cut some of it down we saw a whole family of Blackbird fledglings, all fluffed up with big eyes and open beaks. Now how could we take their lovely home away....we will try again next week ha ha.
Have a fab week.
Love lynn xx

Oh how sweet. I guess the pruning can wait. It would be terrible to break up a happy home.

Oh I so hope you are going to show us a picture when it is in full bloom! t.x

Katie said...

That is the sweetest little posting I've read in a long time. Roses coming through the windows and waiting to prune them until the baby birds living there have flown away. So sweet!

June said...

Oh, how fun to have the birds so near that you can watch them grow. You were lucky to only have roses coming through the window.

The birds are lovely:)

How sweet to have a nest outside your window. Momma bird must have thought you had a comfortable spot
for her to nest with her babies.

I guess pruning will be on the back burner for a while. Enjoy the show of nature outside your window!

Laura said...

Thank you and take care! Laura

I'm sure the blackbird family are very thankful to you for their reprieve Lynn. We have the same issue at the moment with possums in some Boston Ivy outside our bedroom window which MOTH wants to get under control drastically. It's all about living in balance with our garden friends isn't it.

Dont take to much down, it looks so beautiful, I love nature invading houses! In France they are terrible, cutting things down, including trees! I love the look of your house, so English, amitié Martine

How lovely to have roses coming through the window! I am all in favour of that. Have a good week. Denise x

Mo'a said...

How wonderful to have a rose that grows in such profusion...and to find the little home.
I would have been tempted to have the buds bloom inside my house :)

Ulla said...

Count on you to let the birds stay rather then the light... You and I share the same heart....

wanda miller said...

oh how wonderful..i remember last summer that a few limbs reached up to our 2nd floor window..they were tied to the railing at ground level. when they bloomed my husband said of course "we can never cut them down". i love your site and your words. have a wonderful week. wanda

Yoli said...

How tender! Pruning can wait, a happy family can't be pushed out of its home. They are lucky to have such considerate landlords.

Saint Ange said...

HI Lynn,
thanks for your nice comment..
the week-end was marvellous, and the visitors (bloggeuses or not) came numerous to our private market, and the sun was also here.
I am soon going to make my on line "brocante" sale" for the the persons who live far from the Provence

How cute!!!

We also have birds(crows)nesting (inside our chimney) They are so noisy so my daughter can't sleep in the mornings.

The funny thing is that they are very obedient! when my daughter shouts SHUT UP!!!
they really do become quiet for a little while :-)!!!

Hope you are well.....
Hugs

What kind of rose is it? It looks huge! We have a birds nest right nexy to our stable block, but it's a pigeons. It's not as romantic as yours!!

Hi dear Lynn!

Thank you so much for you kind words and warm compassion!! I have missed you dearly, have been thinking about your health as well. How are you? Really? Does the new medicine work as it should? I hope so, it seems liek you have more energy these days. That is great! Myself, is taking one day at the time, but I am slowly getting better. I will tell you later what really happend...

The birds are so adoriable!! What a surprise to find them hidden behind the roses, a super nice gift from mother nature :) The bush is growing very wild outisde your home, I love that. I am a very fan of wild cottage gardens, not too accurate or too trimmed. But that is me :)

I have to stop now, my finger point are getting sore, haha!! Can`t you picture me?? :))
(I laughed well yesterday about your remark, haha)

Take care friend, talk to you really soon!

Kisses, Aina

Ps: I LOVE THE NEW BAG YOU MADE!!!!

Jackie said...

There's too much pruning goes on anyway!
The same thing happened to us last year when we found a goldfinch nest full of eggs hanging from the clematis in August!

...Miss...Maddie's... said...

Just wait till the rose buds bloom and their heavenly scent fills the room.
Nature knows no boundaries.
The birdies are most thankful too.

Henna said...

Sweet birdie! I love your curtains, elegant!
Let´s wish that the medicine does wonders for you and you´ll feel great! One has to learn living with certain things don´t you agree..like husbands ha ha.. We´ll have to think positive :-)
I think i will visit the fleamarket today and hope there will be somthing for me ;-P

Have a lovely day my friend!

Hugs Anne

warm wishes from monique

Pamela Terry and Edward said...

Ah, the same thing happened to me yesterday. Whilst trimming dead branches from an overtall hydrangea...lo! A cardinal nest! Momma and babies! I quietly backed away with my clippers. Fortunately, the nest is just outside my bedroom window, a prime viewing spot!!

fairmaiden said...

What a sweet suprise.

I hope you are feeling better. Collapsing is no fun at all. You poor dear.

Solange said...

that looks very romantic, like a fairytale!!
Have a lovely weekend Lynn, and enjoy the roses.. :-)

Cowboys and Custard said...

What a privilege to have both roses and birds tapping at your window..
Is the rose a Himalayan musk rose?
They are both magnificent and unruly.. but so beautiful in bloom..

Awww what a sweet sight!

Have a lovely week-end!

Carole~Maynard Greenhouse said...

I hate to admit this but we have an old dried out Christmas wreath that we can't take down either because there is a birds nest in it...but who cares they can stay as long as they need to.
Lovely post.
Thank you,
Carole

Annie said...

Lynn, this is so sweet. Yes, pruning can wait while the little fellas get some extra time to grow and take off. Who knows, perhaps some of them will be raising their own little families in the same place next year.
