Blackbirds are Bullies

So here I was, upstairs, watching these ridiculous black birds out the window; flying here, there and everywhere with bits of nest material hanging from their beaks.
And looking over stale half-done paintings.
I think the rest is obvious…

Hummer “the Hun” Hummingbird in my Tree Rose

cherry treesI couldn’t see into it because these tree roses are over 6′ tall. I’m 5’3″.
I couldn’t take a photo today because she is still all ruffled over things. I stuck back branches, geraniums, leaves, more sticks for her to feel comfy and at home again.
But I didn’t dare try flash photography on her or her babes today.
I’ll sneak in tomorrow if I can catch it without anyone on it. I am not sure if it’s both parent or not.
They seem to be everywhere at once so I now suspect they are both setting the eggs. We’ll have to wait and see.
I do hope all is well and she hatches them!

Apologies, my friends. I’ve been alternating between illness and fits of frenzied rose pruning! I MUST take photos of a little gem for you if I dare approach! She’s quite ferocious!

Hang on tight, I shall return!
