Sunday Reflections…

Sitting here watching the first hummingbirds of the day starting to feed, I realize that I’m a lucky man… Many don’t get to see them up close and personal like this. Some fly in and out of the feeders quickly for just a sip. A few stick more to the flowers 🌺 I have planted for them, and a few, that are regulars aren’t scared at all and will sit on a feeder and drink till they have had their fill! They trust that I won’t hurt or bother them. These are my favorites and the ones I call ‘my babies’ 😊

This is one of my ‘Babies’. If I am outside by myself, they act is if I’m not there at all. I ❤️ Hummingbirds 😊

I have feeders in several spots around the gardens, but my porch is their favorite. Maybe because there are also flowers 🌺 that they enjoy too? A ‘Plethora’ of feeding options if you will …

Plant flowers with tubular blossoms and the hummingbirds will come to feed. Butterflies 🦋 too 😊

 

…when you are convinced that all the exits are blocked, either you take to believing in miracles or you stand still like the hummingbird. The miracle is that the honey is always there, right under your nose, only you were too busy searching elsewhere to realize it. The worst is not death but being blind, blind to the fact that everything about life is in the nature of the miraculous.
