I just had a hummingbird in my hanging baskets!!!  I have ALWAYS WANTED A HUMMINGBIRD and have NEVER seen one up close!!!  I did a report on Bolivia when I was in grade 6, and I remember hummingbirds being part of that, and I still have the report.  One time a hummingbird wizzed past my head.  But THIS hummingbird, whom I have named Clancy, stayed at my hanging basket for a really really really long time, and I could even see the white line on his cheek and the white feathers at the tip of his tail!  And then he went to the happy-dancing-solar-sunflower and was tricked about it not being a real flower so came back to the purple hanging clumpy flowers on my basket and stayed so close for so long and THEN flew up into the Maple Tree and perched and pecked and twitched his tail for a long time until he flew to the neighbours' house and now it is raining hard so I hope he is safe and dry and will come back!!!!!!!   Oh, the rain stopped.  Come back, Clancy, come back!!!!  That was amazing.  Really amazing!  Next time I ... HE'S BACK!!!!!


  1. Little miracles. Actually, miracles are never little are they?!

  2. Very cool! Now that Clancy knows where the good eats are, he will come back! Get your camera ready!

  3. Amazing what joys can be discovered in a time of REST ;)

  4. Hummingbirds kind of freak me out. Just a little. I'm always worried that they will accidentally hit me as they're flitting about. It would be cool if you could get a picture of Clancy. And how about a pic of your hanging basket?
