Just when I think I cannot stand any more oppressive heat and humidity, Mother Nature gives us a break. A low below 70, humidity also plunged, and I am met with a breath of literally fresh air as I enter the morning to give my pooch's bladder a break. My mood automatically lifts.

I am tired of watering my pots and gardens, tired of fighting the weeds, tired of dead brown plants I had tried to nurture and failed. Yet, what a gift is a morning like this one. Cool with barely a breeze, yet ultimately comfortable. Then another gift from Mother Nature....I spot my first hummingbird of the season. A smile that I share with no one.

    Hi Gardengirl54...Enjoy your hummingbirds. We have had the pleasure of having a family of them since early spring. Feeders in the carport at my house, and feeders at my daughter's house next door. They fly back and forth from the feeders. We have learned so much about their behaviors. The young play chase and fight over who's turn it is at the feeder. I have pics in my photo gallery. The young are all brown. The parents have green markings on their necks. I planted plenty of morning glories, honeysuckle and other blooms that they can get into for the nectar. They love hiding in my gardenia bush which is near the carport. As the time is growing near for fall, I know they will be leaving us. It makes me sad to think about them leaving.

    Like you, I noticed the air has begun to have that hint of fall coming. The evenings are cooler and the early morning invites me outside again. I have missed you. Enjoy your day.
