Hummingbird Hiatus

19 May

.. One or 2 hummingbirds are back after a long absence.. Funny,  they must not have got the email about the lack of flowers and nectar in the area. No shot of the elusive bugger.. Too early in the season to let me get close enough for a half decent shot.

And,  ever wonder why dandelions are so hard to dig out? A rare full pull(s):

    egb – our hummingbirds were back early too! we started with 2 distinctly different looking males and now a few females. my friend R told me they come every year on may 19 and for 4 years he was right! but this year it was about may 6. we got our feeders out pronto because other than coltsfoot – there’s no flowers yet – not even clover.

    and yes – dandelion roots go on forever. now please tell me that you and A ate the greens/made tea/made wine/or something? please tell me you didn’t waste them!!!

    sending much love to you and A! your friend,
    kymber
