Hummingbirds Welcome!!!


I have always been fascinated with hummingbirds so when I have one in my garden I am thrilled! I had always thought they were very shy and would fly away when someone came near them. However, the one I have in my garden is just the opposite. On more than one occasion, I have been out watering my flowers and have looked up to see my hummer watching me not more than two feet away. Of course, I become very still when I see it so I won't scare it away. We look each other over for a minute and then he is off in search of nectar. But, I always look forward to our next visit ; )
Hope you find some beauty in nature today. Wishing you the very best. Vicki

Vicki, your garden is so beautiful you should hang some feeders out and you will have the hummers all over the place. They are so beautiful and fun to watch, we also have them. I have to be very careful where I place feeders because we have a cat that loves them too.....bad kitty, bad, bad, bad, Char

Hi Vicki! I love the Irish welcome! I love the birds too, but I have never seen a humming bird yet. They are around, I hear, but I just haven't had the privilege yet to SEE one! The only way I know how they look is by pictures!.. So I can imagine what a treat it must be to see your little visitor who watches while you work! ~tina

Hello Vicki, first, thank you so much for visiting my blog and introducing me to yours...you have done a beautiful job, it is lovely...I see you are new at blogging, so am I, I just started in June of this year, at the urging of some of my friends too...and I love it, especially meeting all of my new friends, like you! I always love to read a blog that lists "family" first...we have alot of other things in common too... I adore roses and cannot start out the day without my cup of coffee... I spent many summers in Santa Fe at my Grandmother Delphine's home when I was a little girl, New Mexico is truly the Land of Enchantment...I also love your quotes, and the gorgeous gardens you have, as well as the kitties you care for and the hummingbirds... I love All God's Creatures...I read back through your whole blog... I will visit you often, yours truly is a serene, relaxing place to be... Julie Marie
