Summer here is off to a great start. Just as I was lamenting a couple of weeks ago that there weren’t any hummingbirds around yet, they suddenly appeared seemingly out of nowhere. Now three different hummers have taken up residence in our garden. They are however, extremely territorial and put on quite an arial show when “battling” each other, or at other times dive-bombing me near their favorite flowers. Despite being very small, these hummingbirds vigorously attack much larger birds and chase them off.
The hummingbirds will even harass bees and bumblebees visiting my Lavender Grosso!
Sitting quietly, pausing, inhaling
as the lavender’s intoxicating scent wafts through the air
displacing for just a few moments
all the woes of this world.
Have a peaceful day!
