We have a hummingbird that built a nest right outside our bedroom, on the porch. On a light bulb.
She sits out there on it, I wonder if she will chase us away when her eggs hatch. Right now she watches every single thing we do. I find myself staying away from my bedroom during the day and not sitting on the porch.
We put in a sun shade this weekend. Its helped so much with shading the patio. So you can see why this puts me in a weird place, because I really want to sit out there and hook. But not disturb Mrs. Hummingbird.
When we went to Tucson, that house there had one, and it was amazing how much shade it provided, I had never even thought about one before.
Our bathroom is back to being a bathroom and not a greenhouse. The last of our plants will be planted this weekend. The ones we grew from seed. The ground is warm enough now. Some of the melons I have planted already have blooms. That just amazes me.
I should get outside. I need to grab my little shovel and my plants and get to planting. Its May now, so I am going to be planting sunflowers. This morning we had a green parrot flying over scolding because there were no sunflowers to eat. I normally have a few that came up over the winter but this year I don't for some reason.
Have a lovely day,
“You have, to dream things out. It keeps a kind of an ideal before you. You see it first in your mind and then you set about to try and make it like the ideal. If you want a garden,—why, I guess you've got to dream a garden.”
