Ok, I get it, I really do. You are tired of hearing about my hummingbirds. Well, listen, I have empty nest syndrome............FOR REAL the nests are empty, they are GONE! I saw one last weekend, and then no more. AAARRGG!
If you have seen my avitar is a strange looking flower. They are called spider lillies (does that have 2 ll's?) anyway. I love those flowers. They feel like plastic. Very odd. I guess you have figured out by now, I like odd. (no snickering Thomas) So, these flowers are bulbs. They come out 2 times a year. Fall and spring. Now all of a sudden the old man said, "hey, know what? Are those flowers around the same time the hummers are?" That took me aback. Could he be right? I don't remember when they got here, but I will pay attention next year. I live in Florida. Thought for sure it would be warm enough for them to stay, but I guess Fidel Castro has better nectar this time of year. They fly about 500 miles all at once. If by chance there is an oil rig they will rest otherwise no. 18-22 hours about. Man my arms hurt thinking about it. They are something. So, ok my friends, no more hummingbirds. No more flowers either. They are all but gone too. I love nature, so these things fascinate me. I just hope we leave some for our grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. You know what? How about for our own children now? Oh, don't get me started. We, us, our generation need to step up and make sure.
