Above, a flashy rufous hummingbird (Selasphorus rufus), who was impatiently waiting for me to refill the feeder. If you are curious about our rufous friend, check out the Audubon page. Gorgeous photos and on the lower right, you can listen to them!
And from me, to celebrate Easter Sunday, a photo of lovely scented blooms.
When I was a little girl, Easter was that special time of year when Lent was finally over, and you could have all the chocolate treats you wanted. Finally!
Also, the snow was usually gone (but not always) and… it was that special season where your mother took you to the store, to buy you a brand new spring coat and hat. You had to be elegant, going to church on Easter Sunday. I hated the hats, but was very proud of my new coats, each year! And shiny shoes, too. Memories.
