Well what do we have here? A tiny bright blue robins egg in the garden. The shell was already cracked and it looked like the baby bird had already busted himself outta there. I leaned in real close to get a nice photo of the egg and then this happened:
One of my dogs stepped on it with her fat paws. Thanks for ruining it Doug! Strangely enough I couldn't find any little nests in the lilac tree above it or the rest of the shell anywhere in the garden. These little garden treasures seem to appear out of nowhere!
