Hummingbird

has made it to my little garden you can enlarge to see the bird by the leg of my girl on the Zinnia. We lost our tomatoes in the fight of the horn worms it is hard to think we welcome the butterflies and moth to our garden for their color but we for get they come to lay eggs that eat our plants.
The colors in the flowers are fading and the little bird is of no color. But it is nice to watch him zip from flower to flower.

I am sure by the end of August the flowers will revive and there will be a burst of color for the fall. The moon vine has more and more beautiful cream sweet smelling flowers at night.


It is creeping up on the porch I will let it go and see what it will do. It is a very invasive vine.

Hummers are hard to photograph to me. I love this area of your garden.

Love the cute girl at the fountain. I have seen a few at my feeders. I love how fast they flutter their wings.
