Hummingbird visit

I can't believe a week has gone by since my last post! I was doing so good with my posting and reading. The garden house has sheet rock up now, and I went out and bought the paint for it yesterday. I bought the sample size of the accent colors just in case I didn't like them. So this afternoon I will be sanding the sheet rock, its final sanding, and then I'll paint. My last sanding I forgot to put a cap on to cover my hair. Hubby told me I looked pretty good as a white haired old lady!!!!
My little friend visits every day at the little feeder I have by the kitchen window. This little clip is from last year that I thought that I would share today since I can see them outside my garden house window, but no time to film them! This was actually an accident on filming with my old camera. I had been snapping away so fast that I didn't realize I was filming it!

Fast little thing isn't it? I hope next year it will have a whole flower bed filled with all the flowers it loves!!

Hi Ulrike,

I am looking foward to seeing the next few pictures of your garden house. It so exciting to give it its final colour! I hope you will be happy with the result! I know I had to get used to it very much.

So special to capture a hummingbird on camera. We don't have birds like that in Holland, so I enjoyed you little film very much!

Good luck with the painting!

Lieve groet, Madelief

Enjoyed seeing your little hummer.

Sometimes I think we gardeners are very odd to go to so much trouble and expense for a moment's glimpse of a hummer or butterfly:) Oh well, I'm proud to have either stop by my garden.

It is SUMMER dear---all plans go straight out the window! And you had a lovely day with a hummer while I fought swarms of wasps in the shed, and mud dobbers too.
Wanna trade? :D
Oil changes, filter changed, yard mowed, Anne dead.
I think I'm ready for Fall....yep. I am.

Our Hummers are busy at our feeder!! They also love our Trumpet VIne & Bee Balm that both are in bloom now!
Love the video.....
Have a Wonderful Day!

Hummers are awesome little creatures arent they? You have a good video of the little nectar sipping buzzers :-) They are so difficult to capture on film as they are so busy in the garden...

I remember standing in my garden last year just clicking my camera and I got one good shot when it was taking a rest on some string! Love the hummingbirds. I called them hummers one time during a talk and they thought I meant the car! Talk to you later! Nancy
