Life’s Little Pleasures

Gardeners Touch

Just came in from being in the garden, trying to get some fall clean up started, when the unexpected buzz of a hummingbird whirled around my head. The gate to my garden is draped in a trumpet vine where two of these little beauties decided to chase one another then rest, then drink in the nectar from the vine. It amazed me that they weren’t bothered by me being there, so I just stopped in my tracks to marvel at this beautiful little creature as it rested on one of the branches. For more than 20 minutes it just fluttered around me as it bounced from flower to fence to its branch again. It even allowed me to capture these pictures with my phone. Thankful for one of life’s little pleasures this morning.
