I was talking to the younger son earlier this evening and asked him about the hummingbird nest that is on his patio. He said the baby is only about 3″ in length and it was really hard to see him/her. But after a bit he sent me this photo showing him using an inspection mirror to check out the baby in the nest. Sooo cute! Itty bitty feathers–and the nest is a conglomerate of stuff that defies the imagination–it looks like the stuff that comes out of the lint trap in drains! <shudder>
But all is well and the other mom & dad birds (the Mourning Doves that are nesting across from the hummingbird nest) are patiently awaiting the birth of their little one(s). Richard is quite the proud poppa! LOL And he takes after his mother in that he loves to grow things.
Left to right are Strawberry plants, green beans, corn, and the momma & daddy Dove. Quite the farmer my kid is becoming!
I’ve begun working on another lap quilt — having to piece the backing fabric, but it’ll be o.k.
Be safe, be well, and please be happy. Be sure to tell those you love that you love them.
