My first hummer. . .Happy Springtime Pink Saturday, March 27, 2010

Hello, sweet friends and thank you for coming by for a visit! I saw my first hummingbird today. My heart always skips a beat when these little birds come up for a drink of nectar from my feeder or one of my flowers. I feel like spring is really here when I see a hummer. "La Belle Petite Maison" sign was made by the kind Rebecca of "A Gathering of Thoughts". She is a very talented painter and creator, and this sign is one of my very favorites. I made the Easter garland that hangs in my living room. The other pictures are from the garden of Bunny Cottage. The picture of the hollyhocks against the adobe wall is from Santa Fe and was taken by Charlene Vandini on a road trip she took to NM. Hollyhocks will forever remind me of my growing up days in NM and many happy memories. Please join all the other pink participants including our gracious host, Ms. Beverly, of "How Sweet the Sound", by going here: "The hum of bees is the voice of the garden."~Elizabeth Lawrence

I'm glad I got here early, sweets!! Didn't you get a pix of the hummer. No matter, all the photos are adorable anyways, chickee....

Hi Vicki,
I think I would faint if I saw a hummingbird here this early! We got some snow today so I doubt very much if those little darlings are anywhere near our Island just yet, but what a thrill for you! Lovely photos! I won't be posting my PS until after midnight but I hope to have you stop by tomorrow. Wishing you a lovely weekend full of sunshine.

Dear sweet Vicki,

I love the beautiful sign that sweet Rebecca painted!!! I just love roses and pink! Your pillows are lovely too. What a delight it is to 'visit' your Bunny Cottage inside and out. All of your flowers are so pretty and cheerful. I am so happy you saw your first hummingbird. I think I will put out my feeder since we don't live that far apart, I might get a visitor too. I purchased a few flowers today and I can hardly wait to plant them tomorrow. I enjoyed all of the beautiful photos you shared and your lovely thoughts. I loved the quote.
Much love to you sweet friend!

Vicki don't you just love the way Rebecca paints. She has such a talent.
I have such a love for hollyhocks as well. I remember tham along my grandmother's walk and against her fence in the yard. I plant them in the garden as well. I adore them in all colors.
Your pictures are so lovely.

Always so lovely to visit you. My friend in San Antonio mixed up her sweet nectar for the hummingbirds a couple of weeks ago and I think the has seen one come along. Temps are still a little crazy, back and forth from winter to spring. Hope you have a fabulous weekend. Blessings, Tammy

Good Saturday Morning Vicki!
I'm up early and enjoying the sweet posts of some dear people :o)
Your photos always make me say "ooooooo" and "ahhhhhh" ... they are so lovely ~
and your dear "Bunny Cottage Postcards" make me smile!
The first photo with the soft and delicate pillows is so, so lovely...
and the last one of the little birdies descending from their very own blimp is so adorable! God Bless your sweet soul, Vicki! Thank you for sharing your joy with all of us~

Hello Vicki,

I think your garland is just pretty with its pastel colors :-) Are they post cards? I also like the red ribbon in you iron chairs :-)

I am sure it is always nice to wake in the morning and be greeted by your flowers. It always makes me smile to see fresh flowers. I love smelling them too :-)

Happy pInk Saturday!

C'est Moi, Julie Marie said...

Hello Vicki, I am excited for our first hummers too, last year they arrived on my birthday in May! I knew immediately that beautiful adobe house with the Hollyhocks was in Santa Fe... it so reminds me of my grandma's home, with her Hollyhocks along her driveway... I still plant them too... your little Blue Willow plate looks so cute tucked into your garden too... and I love all of your Springy Easter things... happy weekend to you! xoxo Julie Marie
