As I was looking out my window the other day, I happened to notice these beautiful red leaves perched at the top of my redbud tree. Just a couple. All the rest of the tree is still quite green. Just one more reminder that change is coming. The leaves are beginning to say their goodbyes.
A few others have also begun to say goodbye. Over the last week, I had not seen any hummers. And then, just a little bit ago, one flew by checking out the feeder.
Only an instant.
And then she was gone.
I will miss them and all their flurry of activity.
Some of you have been so lucky to have captured the males and their ruby throats.
I only saw one a couple of times but never got a good photo.
But I always enjoyed them sitting outside my office window on my butterfly bush.
Waiting. Watching. Protecting.
I will miss them.
Safe travels, little ones.
See you next Spring.
