  • My morning with Nature.

    Now I know Hummingbirds don't really have facial expressions per se...Or do they? I wish you could have witnessed my hummingbird this morning. I was sitting out eat my breakfast on the patio when he arrived for his breakfast. He was actually a tad earlier than i anticipated. He whirred his wings took a huge gulp of his nectar and stopped instantaneously, backed away from the feeder and shot a glance in my direction with what was certainly a look of astonishment and wonderment all in one.

    You see I had just a few minutes before re-filled his feeder with fresh sweet succulent nectar...directly from the fridge. It must have been to his liking because he gently landed on the provided perch and sat and slowly sipped his morning brew. he would take a short taste, pull his head back as if to revel in it's magic look around at me as if to convey..."hey you did good this morning." After what seemed like 10 minutes he again whirred off into his world. It was not intentional I have only seen him for the past 3 mornings & it has never been this early in the day so i thought there would be time for it to warm up in the morning sun. Oh well I suppose if it would hurt him he would have left and come back a little later. That reminds me I need a fresh batch of Sun tea to ice down in my fridge. I'll see you all later!

    They are amazing to watch. We have many that come to visit and they do seem to know when the feeder has had a fresh fill.

      I tried a house vac once for a dust collector. It was prone to clogging the lines and when I tried to put a cyclone can on it the vacuum collapsed the garbage can.

      I found this pattern in Steves catalog and freehanded a vase form. This one may appeal to the folks that bought the butterfly vase.

      Sorry took so long to answer. The brown vase I added butterfly instead of doing wood burning. Wanted to keep them so they would appeal to several people. I sold all of them to a flower shop....

      Being younger than 65, with no qualifying health conditions, I don't anticipate getting a vaccine for some time. My wife works for the school district, so she may be eligible in the next phase. President Biden says that supply will be sufficient for all US adults by end of May. I'm hoping that proves...
