Garden path

I took advantage of the warmer weather and started digging my garden path. On either side of it will be flowers and a veggie garden. It is hard work but very rewarding. As I was digging I started noticing grubs. I looked it up and they will become beetles and eat plants and roots. So I started picking them out of the shovel fulls of dirt. I made a pile 'o grubs. Then when I was ready to take a break I would put all the grubs on a plater. As soon as I was a few feet away the Bluebirds would swoop down and feast. It was pretty cool. They watched me and waited, we had a system going. Later, when I was back in the house the Robins went worm hunting in the freshly exposed soil.
