Today was such a glorious day! The sun was shining and there was a warm breeze mingled with the scent of the sweet Honey Suckle blossoms. So I abandoned my petticoat for a pair of well worn bibby's and headed out the back door to play in the dirt.
This little hummer and his lady love entertained me with a lively little Waltz... or was it the Tango? I couldn't really tell, but they twirled in tight little circles first up then down then they would take off in different directions only to meet in the middle and another dance would begin.
When I would turn away they would buzz past my ear like little fighter pilots and I could feel the tiny turbulence from their weence little wings. The first buzzing was a bit intimidating, but one gets used to it after a few go arounds.
Have you ever been buzzed by a Hummer? If you haven't let me tell you, the first time it happened to me I was terrified. I danced about with my arms flailing in the air while screaming. I must have looked silly, but since my garden attracts giant fuzzy Bumble Bees that's who I thought was after me. Once I discovered it was just the Hummers I was OK.
For some reason the little ones in my yard love to dive bomb me while my head is down and they love to dance in and out of the sprinkling water from the hose.
Ah...one of my favorite roses, Bewitched. She has the most intoxicating scent.
This is my hubby's favorite plant in all the garden...the Black Eyed Susan.
He's color blind and yellow is the only color he can truly see. Although he would tell you there are plenty of colors he sees...just not the same as you or me :)!
