Sunday I bought a hummingbird feeder for my porch. I had not given it a lot of thought until this evening; I went outside to sit for awhile and heard the hum of tiny wings right behind me.
I turned to look and the little creature was gone. Sadie was on her tie-out barking at whatever it is she barks at, and I had little hope of seeing him again. But before you know it, he was back. He left and came back several times, but finally he took his place on the tiny perch and drank freely from the feeder. It appears he lives in the nearest tree, because that's where he went each time he left the feeder.
Somebody pinch me; I think I've died and gone to heaven.
Our builder-guy gave us the bid on the enclosed porch and deck we're adding onto the back, and he's well under our budget. He'll start construction next week.
