Magical Reality


In the middle of the mess of trees being devoured and caterpillar crap falling there are small, magical  moments.  Proge found a hummingbird nesting over our driveway this morning.  I took this rather foggy photo through an upstairs window.  Toes crossed that I can get a better one in days to come.


We have had hummingbirds coming to the petunias I have hanging outside my bedroom windows.  I guess Mama Bird decided that close proximity to food is a benefit.

I did this little test dish when the hummers first showed up.  I wasn't thinking about the subject so much as wanting to test some Naples Mason Stain on this glaze.  It burns out pretty quickly on some glazes but seems to be working well here.  This is my old standby Spectrum #799



We got the lawnmower back so we can get a start on the hayfield we call our lawn.

Happy Fathers' Day to all the great daddies out there.

As always, thanks for stopping by.......*s*

    1. Hi Linda....I think the eggs are about half the size of my pinkie fingernail!

  3. I love how the hummer fits so tightly in her tiny nest. I hope you get to witness the baby/babies. Do they typically have just one egg at a time? Seems too tight a space for more than one!

  4. Dearest Suzi,
    Oh my, we both have never ever come across a hummingbird nest. Proge was lucky for spotting this one.
    Your hummers look cute as well.
    Glad you got the lawn mower back and hope you get some rain for having a good looking lawn pretty soon.
    Hugs,
    Mariette
