Gentle Friends, since we are looking Fall square in the kisser, we thought there should be something decorative going on out on the door or in the hall in front of where we live. We've been seeing lots of things in the stores for "front of the house" type of decoration and since we live in a townhouse we really can't do anything too elaborate. We decided to go with a wreath of some sort, and after looking around and pricing those suckers, I knew that Rico could do a much better job with just some raw materials... here's what he came up with...
... I think he did a wonderful job and for a quarter of what a premade one would have been - AND - we get something we like without comprise!!
A friend of mine gave me a hummingbird feeder for my birthday and although we've had the occasional one flit by I've really not noticed any real action until this past week - and some heavy duty sipping over the weekend... here are a couple of snaps of one of the regulars...
both of these photos I took from across the room so they aren't as sharp as I would have liked, but these little birds are super fast!! We can't figure out why - now - we're getting some bird action - I didn't make the nectar any different nor did I place the feeder in a different spot. I don't know what the difference is but I'm really happy about it and they have slurped that sugar water up like nobodies business, I made more last night and will clean out the feeder and refill it tonight.
That's about it for today sports fans, thanks for stopping by do stop again!!
