Monday Morning you sure look fine ♫

Soon, they’ll have travelin’ on their minds…

(Can you name the song/artist? If you were around for the sensational 70’s, of course you can!)

Our hummingbirds in Missouri stay from (approximately) April through September. Last year, we had one pass through in mid-November. At first I thought I was seeing things! I put fresh nectar out for him and the next morning he had traveled on.  

I love Fall, but it always makes me a little sad to think about Summer winding down. I’m filling all six hummingbird feeders twice a day now, but I’ll miss these little guys when they head South for the Winter :-(

What will you miss most about Summer?

Now that's an amazing photo-their wings aren't a complete blur! Just beautiful. I think the thing I'll miss most about summer is all the glorious fruit.

I love summer. I really do. I love the smell of fresh cut grass, and yummy vegetables from the garden. I love being outside all the time, and the feel of the hot sun on my shoulders. But, fall is my absolutely favorite time of year. The crispness to the air, wearing a sweater, football games. Yep, I love fall. The bad thing about fall is that pesky thing called "winter" that follows it :)!!

I hate to see summer go too but I have a son that plays college football so fall is a time to head off to games and tailgate with friends. I LOVE THAT! Check out our blog sometime http://www.funkyjunksisters.blogspot.com

I love fall and look forward to it the most, but I do miss the hummers, my flowers, fresh herbs and summers bounty. Wonderful photo, what editing program do you use, I love the frame on the photo, nice! We just got a nice rain shower, hope you did too!

Did you take that picture?! First, I've never seen more than one hummingbird at a time and the perfect capture of the wings is amazing!

I'll miss the summer time fairs and activities at local parks. Things like concerts in the park.

Fall is my favorite season, but I will miss the evenings that I sit out on my back porch, sharing time with my husband. Cool, summer nights -- the best.

I've enjoyed your blog. Love the photos from the Amish farm.

Great picture, the most I see at my feeder is 3, but only 1 feeding at once, the others are "running" from it... a little territorial.
What will I miss about summer...pretty much everything but the never ending rain, we haven't had much yet....still hoping summer will start.
I do love Fall!

Great photo Tammy! I know I will miss the sound of a gentle breeze rustling through the leaves as I relax reading a delicious novel.
Be well. ~Andrea~

I'll miss BBQ's, and sitting out at night enjoying the warm weather and clear skies.

Did I miss summer? shoot.
I'll miss not having to worry that the kids aren't getting their homework done on time...
I'll miss fresh tomatoes, fresh sweet corn & fresh asparagus!

Hi Tammy,
Congratulations on winning the drawing!! Good for you! First time I have been over to visit,
glad Lois clued us in. Hummingbirds are so adorable, I have never had any in my yard, so didn't really think we had them in florida
but I have been told otherwise. I love this birds tho, we have a bird bath in the back and we get a lot of cardinals, bluejays, and
mockingbirds, so we really enjoy them.
Have a great day, and enjoy you prizes.
Blessings, Nellie
Nice to meet you.

Porch Days said...

We,too, enjoy seeing the hummingbirds. What I will miss about summer are days in the hammock and my beautiful flowers on the porch and deck.
