Hummingbird Legend, Apple Blossom and Home Again

06 May

1 ‘Legends say that hummingbirds float free of time carrying our hopes for love, joy and celebration. Like a hummingbird, we aspire to hover and savour each moment as it passes, embrace all that life has to offer and to celebrate the joy of every day. The humming bird’s natural grace reminds us that life is rich, beauty is everywhere, every personal connection has meaning and that laughter is life’s sweetest creation. ” These words are on a card on my daughter’s fridge and they appealed to me and my own philosophy. They came to her on a Congratulations on Your New Baby card by Papyrus.

2. The apple blossom has come out in the few days I’ve been here.


3. I have had the loveliest days with L and her beautiful baby, enjoying the company of them both but now I am home and it is always lovely to come home. The blossom is out on the Malus and the horses are back in the back field which is quite delightful. Look carefully to see them at the far end of the photo.

      A dream for us too but the legend is lovely. We did see them at the sugar feeders when we visited my sister in Arizona and they are very lovely but too fast for me to ever catch on camera. 🙂

    Hummingbird philosophy – yip! I can live and move in it very easily. Thank you for that. There’s a kind of wildness about your garden that appeals to me.

      Me too – it’s humanism in action. Glad you like our garden – it is coming on and we are pleased with it too. 🙂

    On the wings of a humming bird. The complete opposite to ‘beast of burden’. Now that you point it out, Hummingbirds do convey that outlook. Am guessing some baby clothes with humming bird motifs might get spun out ? Apt idea, no?

    I can see them, two I believe. Brown mare, black mane and tail, behind her a black beauty, his ears back nose up surveying his surrounds. Why they’re not up closer inspecting the Malus am clueless.I guess they fancy a feast of spring grass over a feast for the eyes. Oh well, to each there own.

      Delightful idea! I shall have to look into that!

      Yes, two beautiful creatures who are enjoying the newly sprung Spring grass. Quite glad they don’t fancy the Malus! 🙂

      We are lucky aren’t we, just fields and with a veto on building on them! 🙂
