I just came inside after having the most amazing experience right out on our back porch! When it got really dry this summer (they say we've been in a drought for the past couple of years) and the flowers just dried up, we put out a hummingbird feeder that I keep full of sugar water.
I was putting out some fresh nectar while ago and got literally mobbed by hummingbirds! I got a few photos afterward but wish I could share the experience of having those tiny birds fly right up to your face as if to say "who are you?"
There are times when I wish we had cable, stores and nice restaurants less than 15 miles away and some of the other amenities of city life. Then there are times when I walk out on any of our porches and know that the lack of those amenities is nothing in comparison to the perks we have right here in the middle of nowhere!
