BLUE Monday and Hummingbirds









It is another BLUE Monday and how fun it is hosted again by Sally from SmilingSally. Click to go to her post to see all the other BLUE participants today.

This weekend at the cottage we had rain again on Saturday morning. The hummingbirds were out in the rain and behind you can see the BLUE water (though its not looking that blue) . They were so hungry the wet weather wasn't bothering them. They were even pretty good about sharing the feeder for a change.


















It was so nice watching the right outside the window as we ate our breakfast.














Later in the day the rain had stopped and we had blue skies. The water became quite rough and it was quite chilly outside. The windsock with its BLUE was blowing. The hummingbirds were so hungry all weekend but they refused to let me get a picture of them with the BLUE sky and BLUE water and the flag.

Finally they sat down and even shared the feeder with each other again. The water didn't look so BLUE in this picture again. It'll be sad to see them leave again in the next few weeks.

I hope the sun shone wherever you were this weekend... Judi xoxo

Great pics of the hummers. Ours are fighters too. We actually had 2 share the feeder yesterday and that was a first. Saturday evening 2 were fighting and fell to the ground. Mike sprayed them with water to get them to stop wrestling. Now that was also a first! Never saw them have physical contact before. They are fun to watch. Ours and green with a red neck or all black. Our son in MD says his are purple. Sure am glad you got some sun at the cottage. Have a good Monday.

Oh, the sun shone in Tampa this weekend. We had gorgeous blue skies both Saturday and Sunday without a drop of rain. (I do get tired of rain.) Your view is amazing, and you make me envious! Happy Blue Monday.

I always enjoy seeing hummingbirds as we do not have them in England. You have a wonderful blue view from your cottage. It must be a lovely place to relax.
Have a great week.

Great pictures of the little birds! My humming birds only came a couple of times this year; I think they prefered the next door neighbor's feeder better than mine. I did catch them around my hostas a few times though. Happy Blue Monday.

Blessings,
Sandi

You have a lovely view, rain or shine. I'm amazed you were able to capture the hummingbirds. I glad the sun finally broke through for you. The sky is always so lovely following a storm. I hope you are having a wonderful day.

Hi Judi,

I just adore watching hummingbirds as they are my FAVORITE little bird of all!! They are truly funny with all their fighting over the feeders! We had 5 of them flitting around the feeders the other day.

A rainy day at the cottage sounds very cozy. I have a hummingbird feeder too and I get such enjoyment from watching them. I love how they will come hover in front of me when I sit out at the table on our patio. They are definitely curious little birds!

How neat! We have stayed in a couple of state parks in Florida and Georgia that had hummingbird feeders outside the restaurants and the little hummers were so amazing to watch. I like this little feeder with the crook that can be moved around quite easily!
