Celebrating The Small Things
Yesterday while sitting on my balcony enjoying the view and the breeze a tiny gray hummingbird fluttered by. Then a few minutes later he came back and did an another fly-by, showing off a bit. It was such a surprise! I have never seen a hummingbird on my balcony before. I don’t know what brought him here. Maybe the flowers in pots but I have always had flowers out there and never a hummingbird. Whatever the reason for his visit it was lovely and made me smile.
So, today I bought a hummingbird feeder and nectar. I hung it on the railing watching for another visit but doubtful that it would happen. Surprise! Within an hour a hummingbird was fluttering around and checking out the feeder. He took a few sips and was on his way. I wonder if this will be a regular stop on his daily rounds? I hope he does come back and brings his family and friends.
The hummingbird’s visit…a small thing…worthy of a celebration.
