They are gone. They are here?

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. 
Loved the blog about the bear, thanks for he laugh with my coffee. Y'all get busy and write, I love reading them all. Thanks.

My husband loves to watch the hummingbirds too and he misses them when they are gone. It's always sad to take the feeders down in the Fall...

Great blog. Loved reading about your hummingbirds. And what is it? Something like 300 wing beats per minute? Amazing.

My mother absolutely adores hummingbirds. One day when she can have a regular house, I am going to get her a little feeder, so she can sit outside and sip coffee while watching them zip around.

We love the hummingbirds also and have four feeders on the porch. I also have some bushes in the yard that they like and I discovered this year that they like moss roses. I have several pots of them on the front porch. We still have one come by every now and then but they are dwindling. Thank you for this blog as I love reading about hummingbirds and flowers. Oh yes, we also have 4 bird feeders for regular birds and put out water for them

I have to say our bug population was not so bad while they were around. They are carnivorous. They are also clasified as song birds!. I will keep one feeder out and wait till next year. SIGH.............

I didn't know hummers were carnivorous. They're such amazing little creatures. Good blog. Shared.
