  1. Beautiful photos! I especially love the hummingbirds, my very good friends and regular visitors at our cottage in summer in Michigan. Seeing them here gives me hope that this long, ungodly stretch of frigid winter will someday give up and let those hummers get on back to another summer!

    • Yes, my son called them this when he was little and it stuck with me! According to old myth, people thought they ate butter which they don’t so I like the name better too!

    • There should have been a winter with frost, below freezing nights and cold rain and sleet, but due to the drought it has been an endless, scary summer! So happy for the rain. Cheers to you and thank you too!
