Another inch of rain and driving winds brought in the night. The sky lit up continuously and left me wondering if anything would be left standing the next morning. It's usually quite easy to fall asleep to a stormy serenade but with the upcoming young hummingbirds I worried that many plants wouldn't remain to entice these new arrivals.
Morning brought in another beautiful sunrise and beads of water glistened upon the Nasturtium leaves. Squeaking filled the yard and I couldn't believe I was missing some of the hummingbird action. I quickly set up my chair and pulled out my camera. No sooner did I sit down, and a young hummingbird greeted me with my first photo opportunity.
Ahhhhh, hummingbirds. Does it get any better? The air was filled with freshness and it was yet another beautiful morning.
