The Lonely Lion: Part 3

As the several weeks of warm air continues to hover the grounds, the more blooms begin to unearth and reveal their ever so splendid colors.  The sign of colorful flowers also brings meaning to the birds of the air and the meaning of new beginnings to their nests in the trees.

As our flowers in our backyard begin to bloom each year, I realize more and more that the flowers I had chosen tend to be purple.  Reason being, the purple draws many hummingbirds and butterflies so you may understand my fascination with this color.  The hummingbirds (and another favorite yellow finches) have yet to arrive, but soon enough will see a glimpse of their tiny bodies and ever so fast wings.

PS - My husband believes the hummingbirds like to dive bomb him while he prunes flowers in the wee hours of the morning.  It is entertaining to watch him duck and almost dive...  I think it may hurt worse than a bee sting if it really did happen.  HaHa!

The images of the birds were taken from quite a distance, I'm surprised in their clarity as I only have a 'fancy' camera, not a 'super fancy' camera.
