This morning I flung open the curtains in my bedroom to greet the morning sunshine. What did I see? A beautiful Ruby Throated hummingbird was floating just outside my window. He seemed to be considering the lavender. Checking to see if it was ready for breakfast. It wasn't and off he flew. I adore these little birds!
So I refreshed my memory on the correct recipe for nectar (one part sugar to four parts water) and filled the hummingbird feeder. It made enough to keep a jar in the fridge for refills, so I went to look in the basement and found this old blue jar that I painted years ago. It seemed perfect. I think God smiled as he gave me the little gift of a jeweled visitor for my morning treat. Happy Birthday to me:>) Yes, it really is my birthday:>)
