Be still my heart!
For a long time, I have tried to lure hummingbirds into our yard, with no success. I've seen a few dart around the neighborhood on a few occasions, but have never been successful in feeding them. BUT apparently my lowly, unappreciated morning glories attracted them, because I saw one a few weeks ago feeding on the fragile blossoms. Excitedly, I put out my hummingbird feeder which, until now, had only attracted ants and bees. To my great excitement, the hummers started showing up on a regular basis. And finally this morning I had some time to wait patiently with my camera for them to appear. They did not disappoint, and were flitting around me and even posing for pictures! I can't tell you how excited I was! But I can show you!
