Yesterday, a hummingbird came to visit the flowers right outside the kitchen window. It stayed but a moment and was gone before anyone else could even turn to see it. It was grey with black markings on its head and wings. I think it’s the closest I’ve ever been to one and I am fairly sure I can still count on one hand the number of times I’ve seen them in my lifetime (not counting pictures/television). Also, the area I’m in is still relatively new, without any established gardens and the like (many of the bird varieties are really only just starting to return to the area), so it was such a lovely and unexpected gift of the day! To me, it was really something special.
Wishing you unexpected gifts this weekend too.
