Hummingbird Confusion

Let me preface this with the disclaimer that no, every post on this blog will not be banner-related. It’s just that for the last two months I have spent every Thursday Friday and Saturday sewing and selling the things, and every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday learning how to make a website about them. I am, I think understandably, a little banner-obsessed right now. When I looked out my kitchen window this morning and saw a hummingbird attempting to suck nectar out of a dangling streamer of the banners on our deck, it felt like an affirmation of sorts. Don’t worry. There are feeders nearby with nutrients for the little dears, and tubular flowers to spare. So forgive me if I took delight in the little guy’s futile attempt to, metaphorically speaking, get blood from a stone.

    heh he, funny image. For a little twist on that – my godmother loves telling a story about catching her husband standing in front of the refrigerator drinking from (what he thought was) a koolaid pitcher. She busted him and let him know that he was drinking hummingbird solution. Turned out he’d been doing it for months.
