Hummingbirds are back

When at last I took the time to look into the heart of a flower, it opened up a whole new world; a world where every country walk would be an adventure, where every garden would become an enchanted one.
~ Princess Grace of Monaco

Our hummingbirds are back  

My husband took these photographs of the hummingbirds at our
They almost seem in a frenzy in their feeding getting
ready soon for their long long migration
some as far as Costa Rica

Enjoy every ounce of these beautiful days

The Hummingbird
Legends say that hummingbirds float free of time, carrying our hopes for love, joy and celebration. Hummingbirds open our eyes to the wonder of the world and inspire us to open our hearts to loved ones and friends. Like a hummingbird, we aspire to hover and to savor each moment as it passes, embrace all that life has to offer and to celebrate the joy of everyday. The hummingbird’s delicate grace reminds us that life is rich, beauty is everywhere, every personal connection has meaning and that laughter is life’s sweetest creation.

I send thee pansies while the year is young, 
Yellow as sunshine, purple as the night; 

Flowers of remembrance, ever fondly sung 

By all the chiefest of the Sons of Light; 

And if in recollection lives regret 

For wasted days and dreams that were not true, 

I tell thee that the "pansy freak'd with jet" 

Is still the heart's ease that the poets knew

Take all the sweetness of a gift unsought, 

And for the pansies send me back a thought.

~Sarah Doudney

“Sunday is the golden clasp that binds together the volume of the week”

The kiss of the  sun for pardon
The songs of the birds for mirth
There is no place closer to Heaven
than a garden here on Earth

Sunday is best spent with an open and loving heart
Enjoy this beautiful May day

I love bamboo lilacs and lily of the valley
and all flowers


“Each day has a magical moment that 
helps us to change and sends us out to 
make our dreams come true."

My sweet little hummingbirds have returned to the 
feeders on our balcony

I hope lovely surprises are coming your way

~ Listen To The Garden ~
Every garden has a story, if we but stop and read
And turn the leaves most gently, our heart and soul to feed.
There's a mystery in petals, stamens, pistils, pods
Word, for word we read to find, the tender heart of God.
Turn every leaf and see, the veins, the pattern clear
Pause with thought to listen, His whispers you will hear.
Breathe in and murmur low, inhale the pungent, sweet
Then press the velvet softness, against your rosy cheek.
Look deep into the colour, the texture of each plant
Watch the insects all at work, the bee, the wasp, the ant
Sit, feel the breeze, its secrets, softly sway
For every garden has a story, God's unfolding every day.

  1. Hi Jeanne,

    I loved seeing the sweet hummingbirds and they must be fun to watch. Amazing that they can fly so far away.
