So yesterday morning I was gawking out the window and saw one of these little beauties looking for food:

I grabbed a feeder, filled it, ran out and put it up, then ran back in and watched and waited. And waited. And waited. No hummingbird. :( I figured I probably missed him and he went elsewhere.

Then this morning I stepped outside to do my gawking around and I heard a buzzing noise, looked, and right in front of me is the hummingbird hovering, I said "Hi!" He said, "cheep cheep" and flew to the feeder. I answered, "You're very welcome!" :D I love those little guys so much.

Morning all, tea or coffee is on.

May you have good day ahead.

Proof of a strong marriage: Ikea Nordla night table assembled (correctly) and we're still talking to each other (without sarcasm or nasty words!) :biggrin:

Wow, Castanet needs to get its facts straight! The amazing rainbow was on Friday, not Sunday! I was there and took my own pictures with my cell phone, so I know. These pictures are with a crappy cell camera, so they fade out the double rainbow and diminish the brightness of the inner rainbow.

You have too much of your time devoted to shopping..........for people that you don't like, and just want to emasculate and embarrass in public.
If at first you don't succeed, skydiving is not for you.
