Expecting

It seems today would perfect.
Blue skies and sunshine, the warmth and stillness of spring.
And if I turn from my yard work to see he's returned--perfect it will be, indeed.

Update :
My male Ruby-throated Hummingbird returned 3 days after this post.
April 23, 2008.

Oh you just reminded me to put out my hummingbird feeder! And I can't think of a more beautiful shade of pink. Congrats on your first sighting of the season.

Even though we have hummers here year round, they are still a special treat. I just posted a couple of photos yesterday, of one dipping into my fountain for a bath. I love to see them finding the flowers that are starting to bloom in the garden now.

We are still awaiting their arrival too.

Don't be sad, Nina, the hummers will return. I just saw our first of the year a couple of days ago. Now they seem to be all over the place.
