Hummingbird Saturday

Parvati says, "I was minding my own business - inside mind you ..." 

"...when this hummingbird appeared at the kitchen window and I about leaped out of my skin in excitement!"

"I've a bit of pollen on my beak. I think I might sneeze!"  

"Or can I even sneeze?"

"Well, I can ruffle my wings!"

Very close!

When the sunlight glints on the feathers.

After several very warm days, Friday was a pleasant 77f.

And the day ended with a lovely sunset.

One year ago today Mom and I took a tour of Glasgow, Scotland.

Beautiful hummers! We've had very pleasant weather this past week and it's supposed to only be in the 70's next week. Very unusual for July, which is usually hot and humid.
