The weather doesn’t seem to be able to decide what it’s going to do lately. We wake to what appears to be sunny skies and these wonderful wispy clouds floating along the foothills.
Then the next thing you know it’s raining! After a rain-shower mid-morning I came out to the kitchen to find both bird feeders occupied – a hummingbird at its feeder and the red-head at the woodpecker feeder. Of course by the time I found the camera only “ranga” was left but it still makes me smile to think about it.
Ironically I’d only just changed the hanging baskets around this morning, moving the red petunias to the front and bringing these purple ones to the back, and already the hummingbirds are sniffing around the flowers.
Says a lot about the hummingbirds preference for red flowers but I’m so glad they’re coming back. Hopefully they’ll bring back friends and family so I’ll stop wondering where they are and… “mum, how much longer?”
