Obsessed with hummingbirds.


The ruby-throated hummingbird is a wonder of migration. Every winter it makes an amazing journey. Some have been known to make a journey of 2500 miles or more, from Alaska to Central America. Because  of it, the hummingbird is a symbol for accomplishing that which seems impossible. It will teach you how to find the miracle of joyful living from your own life circumstances.
-Ted Andrews

We are finally getting our share of hummingbirds at our feeder.
They are not pink but I cannot help but share.

I hung these petunias near the feeder to help attract them.
They were slow getting to our area as everyone has mentioned it.


The very first hummer we saw this year.

I got this shot one day while sitting on my deck.
I printed it out and plan on painting it and putting it on canvas.




Linking up with Pink Saturday

Hello Peggy, Thank you for your sweet comment on my post today. It is nice to meet you.

I too love hummingbirds and we too just saw our first one at the feeder a couple days ago. I wasn't quick with my camera. We just came home from vacation and the first thing we did was put the feeder out.

I would love to see your painting of the hummingbird if you decide to go ahead with your thoughts.

Happy Pink Saturday.
xo,Jeanne
