Hummers and stuff!

It is not easy to catch a hummer with a camera. Those little birds fly really fast.

This is the Passion Vine growing on the old "monkey bars" on my son's playset.

I have had Gulf Fritillary butterflies in my yard all summer. This Passion Vine has been covered with their caterpillars all summer too! It hardly has any leaves left for them to eat.

I finally found a chrysallis!
I have had computer withdrawal today! My laptop had been suddenly shutting down for a few days. We discovered that the fan had quit working, so it was overheating and shutting down. It was cheaper and faster to get a new laptop than replace the fan. (I don't require a laptop with lots of bells and whistles!) My sweety spent the day getting all the stuff from my old laptop transferred to the new one. I spent the day actually getting stuff done since I couldn't sit around on my computer! On Saturday morning, I tilled my garden. I am hoping to plant a small fall garden. I also have to fix some holes in the fence where I saw rabbits getting into the yard this summer.
Ya'll Come Back!



  1. HI Lorilee,
    I haven't seen any hummers for about a week or so by us. I think it's their time to start heading south for the winter. That's a great shot you got. They are very fast. I wonder how long it takes them to fly from here to the carribean where they spend the winter. Hugs, Loretta

  2. I think our hummers are gone, we will miss them. I love your shots of them.
    I know what you mean about the computer, I get so much done when I get off this infernal time sucker.

  3. Love your pictures... and your hummingbirds.

  4. What a great shot of the hummer!

    Isn't it sad that it is cheaper and easier to replace things than to get them fixed !

    Almost all of my ceilings are our bedroom blue with clouds. Guest room is blue, dining and living rooms are yellow. In the kitchen I just took the wall color up and over. (())

  5. Hi Lorilee!
    Beautiful pics and lovely thoughts. I've never found a exciting!
