Does anybody have a recipe for a good robin's egg omelet?

We were going to go boating yesterday.....but after loading up all the stuff for our maiden voyage of the season, we discovered this:
Aaarrrggghhh! What to do?!

I can tell you one thing we didn't do--and that was to go boating!
We are tender hearted animal lovers on the horns of a dilemma. One of our friends told us to "make a 3 egg omelet and go boating!" My brother says it's a no-win situation for them--they'll fly out of the nest and fall into the water and drown. Oh dear....

Meanwhile, the flowers in the back yard are simply stunning. The tropics have nothing over the Midwest on a fine June day--so lush are the greens & so fragrant is the air. There's something very satisfying about picking a bouquet this time of year. This is our dining room table this afternoon:

I was looking through some quotes to find something about light of recent events, this one was just too good to pass up....
You must not know too much or be too precise or scientific about birds and trees and flowers and watercraft; a certain free-margin, and even vagueness - ignorance, credulity - helps your enjoyment of these things.
---Walt Whitman
