had the most five or six delightful minutes in the garden this afternoon;-)…

I was eating the last delicious bits of yesterday’s Blizzard on the back deck and spotted a hummingbird in the garden…

for a long time we had feeders, but no hummingbirds, so we gave up… a few have flown through over the years, but none stayed around to snack…

it moved around slurping from the petunias which are everywhere in the space this year… from the six planters around the deck, to the morning glories in the dahlia planter in the centre of the yard, to the baskets hanging along the neighbour’s garage… and back again…

my camera was close by, but I just enjoyed the moment…

I’m fairly sure it was a female ruby-throated hummingbird…

how blessed that I was sitting in that spot and looked up at that exact moment…
