The last day of May......

And here is a beautiful May Hummingbird who visited
 David and Nicola and Vincent on the Meadow in the Chilcotin

and allowed David to take his picture, and David in turn has
allowed me to show you this wonderful colourful fellow

so bright eyed and golden throated, - his pale pastel feathery body
so indicative of  a glorious spring

He is only one of many hundreds who visit the meadow folk.

Here is the breakfast bar at 4:30 a.m. a few mornings ago

and I have seen photos of over two dozen customers
on David and Nicola's blog at the Homestone

Their latest posting is of wildflowers in the Chilcotin

very beautiful, very delicate.
sweetly captured.

My work is the world
.  Here the sunflowers, there the hummingbird -
equal seekers of sweetness.
Here the quickening yeast; there the blue plums..."

Plump little hummer! One dive bombed Bob in his red biking shirt as we sat on the deck in the late afternoon. Nothing blooming in my garden yet to attract them. Your Header is so lovely, Hildred.

Wow! Amazing pictures of wonderful little birds.

I'm jealous; we don't have any hummingbirds over here. Thanks David, Nicola, Vincent, Hildred and Charles!
