I did notice that the water level was going down -- but the storms and wind might have been responsible for that. At least that's what I thought.
Until this morning!
I sat on the back step, drinking my coffee with Luke warming my lap. Suddenly, ZIP! BUZZ! And there helicoptering around the feeder... a hummer! It drank and drank, then zipped over to the clothesline and perched for a minute. How I wished I had my binoculars in hand. Or my camera. But all I had was a cup of delicious coffee, much needed after last night's Cinco de Mayo margarita.
Oops, that's another story.
After a rest on the clothesline, the hummer zipped back to the feeder and then off across the yard. Where did it go? I hope to tell the other hummers it's time to get back to Busy Solitude Farm!
Can summer be far off?
