"The earth is the Lord's and the fulness thereof;
the world and they that dwell therein."

Every year, I plant a cherry tomato plant in the Earth Box on the back patio, using a strong metal spiral to tie the plant to, to keep it from being unruly. This year, I neglected to keep up with the fast-growing plant, so the top of the spiral is now a free perch. The little red-headed finches come to perch on it to swing down to the bird bath which is next to the box for a drink or a swish . Now, this pair of hummingbirds have taken over. Ron wanted to have a feeder this year, so we researched on the internet and found the best way to do that for the welfare of the little warriors. So far, we've had this pair - one has a bright red head, which does not show up in the shade. We delight in watching their antics. My only safe post is just inside the window that faces this scene. Now I wish I had a better telescoping lens - but this will do for now.
