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