For the last ten days we have had a daily visitor.

 A beautiful robin who is not at all shy or afraid of humans. He/she is more than content to peck around the garden less than two yards from us.

He/she is currently tucking into the ripening grapes.

We bought and installed a nesting box for them complete with sawdust and we are hoping that they will stay permanently.

We are dreaming of a robin and snow for Christmas!
