That Wonderful Light and Hollow Feeling—Monday, August 14, 2017

Way back in June I sat about making a couple of Hummingbird swings….

I hung them and waited…and waited…and waited…then last night

As the sun faded quickly from the heavens, and the night air scented with the smell of Four O’clocks and sweet Lilies

Several of those tiny flying jewels tried out the swing!!!

I WAS DELIGHTED!  (to say the least 🙂 )

Then while I watched and waited, for that perfect photo, of a hummingbird on a swing…a little wasp decided to see what all the fuss was about.  I had to laugh-out-loud as the joy that little swing has brought, not just to me, but those creatures living in our yard!

Your friend on a western Colorado farm,

  1. We may have found where the hummer’s nest is! Waiting until late fall when we know they are gone and then are going to dig around in the wisteria by the garage :-D.

  2. If I recall it correctly, this is what I first noticed when I discovered your blog,Linda!! What a lovely swing and such wonderful birds!!! We have a large insect that sometimes roames in the garden, its an “elephant something something fly” and it looks and buzzes very similar to the humming bird.
    I remember how I ran around shouting out that we had hummingbirds in our garden…..I was a bit too quick there!!! Thank you for this almost magical post!!
