I came home yesterday to find these completely enchanting photos, taken by my husband, on the camera disk. He’d been telling me that the hummingbirds have been visiting daily and he was hoping to get pictures of them.
Unfortunately, they move really fast. And he would have to shoot through the glass windows of the breakfast nook. He wasn’t too thrilled with what he saw on the camera.
But I found them lovely.
I played with a few of them, using textures.
Because that’s what I do.
He told me that they like to rest along the wire.
I love the green background and this light!
The colors on this one are magical.
The flowers are from aloe plants that he has potted and lined up under the window in an old flower bed. The little hummers seem to really like them.
Three summers ago, when we were living in Pennsylvania and my husband was working on a horse farm, he burned his arm using an old weadeater there. It looked pretty bad and I thought he should see a doctor. But he asked me instead to pick up an aloe plant for him and began applying the juice directly to the wound. (If you look at his arm today, you can’t even see a mark – it worked so well).
Anyway, we had no idea how prolific the little plant would be. It grew quite large and has been separated several times and we now have quite the garden, full of blooming yellow-flowered spikes.

In other news, the oppressive heat has abated, leaving our area luxuriating in wonderful weather and low humidity for the weekend. Hope yours will be a good one.
How are things in your neck of the woods?
