  1. You remind me to put up a hummingbird feeder… I’ve seen a few in my yard – mostly traveling to get to my neighbors.
    I have seen a few butterflies, mostly cabbage (all whitish) ones. I think I may have seen one Monarch. But the milkweed isn’t very tall yet.

  2. Hummingbirds.. such bliss.. would be great to have them around..

  3. Nice find!! Boom, Bobbi and Gary.

  4. Loved visiting with my sister in Illinois and watching the hummingbirds in the morning…lovely haiku.

      Chuparosa. Another name is “hummingbird bush.” It grows only in the desert, and hummingbirds are attracted to the blossoms.
