Lifted Spirits in the Garden

During this time of ‘staying at home’ I’m thankful I can retreat to my backyard and enjoy the beauty of nature.

And I’m not alone.

I caught this little hummer perched high above in the fir tree, looking fresh and fluffy.

And I found a female finch playing hard to get,

though a handsome male was pursuing.

Don’t they make a nice couple?

  1. Youโ€™re right that going out in the garden lifts the spirits. How cool to see a hummingbird just sitting there๐Ÿ˜€I need to be spending more time out in my yard. The weather has been great for it!

    • I was so happy that the hummingbird sat there long enough for me to get a photo. I often see them at the hummingbird feeders but they’re usually too fast for me everywhere else! ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Amazing how fast they are! Well as a response to your inspiration I think Iโ€™ll go check out my back yard for awhile๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒผ๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒต

    • Thanks so much! ๐Ÿ™‚ I often see the hummers at the feeders but they don’t usually sit still long enough for me to get a picture of them perched high above. So it was a treat!

  2. Strange how in the animal world it is usually the male of the species that wears the fanciest colours and sings the sweetest song. Perhaps we got it the wrong way round, and that’s why the divorce rate is so high?
    Best wishes, Pete.

  3. I love your birdees, but that first picture looks like something from a landscaping magazine. I want to sit in that back yard.

  4. Slowing down this time has really made me appreciate our yard in a much deeper way. I love the glimpses of yours too.

    • Thank you. We’re fortunate to have a yard to enjoy nature right outside our door. How much more difficult it would be to be apartment bound during this time.
