After the day I had yesterday which finished with me stone sweeping the lawn (not my eleven old son as planned but to his credit he did do the after-clean), when friends rang last night inviting me to dinner this evening I jumped at the chance!
It was so nice having dinner with just we ladies, its been ages since I’ve done that. And if that wasn’t enough, as I was leaving to go to my car I heard that familiar humming sound. I turned around and could NOT believe what I was seeing…
When I arrived I saw a couple darting around and was told they’d counted 21 last night but didn’t believe for a moment it was 21 SEPARATE hummingbirds but after seeing this, WOW!
They were amazing! They’d all come together to drink the sugar-water then together they’d all go, then back again, and again and again. What can I say, I’m moving in for the summer, well, the Hummingbird Season at least!
To say I have Hummingbird Envy would be an understatement. More hummingbird feeders are ordered and I shall not rest until I have conquered the Hummingbird Crowd!
I jest but certainly would not say no to more hummingbirds. It would be lovely to have them humming about, it’s simply a case of when… “mum, how much longer?”
