Watching the Hummers & a Neighbourly Gift...

I sat on the deck at the cottage yesterday and watched the hummingbirds feeding.   I had made a fresh batch of juice for them and they were making such a racket (and they do make a racket) at the feeder.  They were sharing and not sharing and I was sure they were going to collide right into me as I sat there.

 sometimes they will be so friendly to each other and share....

 other times they chase each other in flight all over the yard....
I really do enjoy watching them.  There were about  5 of them flying around at that time.
See the plant and container on the deck?

Well Georgia next door bought the large jug at a garage sale.  I was so delighted that she would give it to me.  I had so many ideas about what to do with it.  Its made in Italy and nice and heavy.

I thought it went perfectly with the teapot garden planter I had made from a teapot and cup and saucer.  So for now it sits elegantly displayed on the deck.
Have a wonderful day and I hope your weather is as picture perfect as ours and you too can enjoy the outdoors.  The temps have been in the upper 70s at the lake with a beautiful breeze....  Judi xoxo

Thanks for your visit Judi! I love watching hummingbirds...they are so cute! We have alot in our backyard.

I am usually not ready for fall at all,but this year here in Arkasas we have had temps hitting 115 alot of days! It's just unbearable. I'm just ready for temps in the 80s so I can work in my pitiful looking yard! Tomorrow is going to be 108! Whew! I bet you have nice weather up there in Canada. I would love to be up there right now! Have a great night, Kristen
