I just love having a hummingbird feeder! We have ours hanging on our back door, so we can get very close to them; and now that we have the windows on the back bay open, we can hear them chittering away all day. Very sweet. I’ve been thinking all along that I ought to take some pictures one of these days, but it wasn’t until today that I actually got around to doing so.
My daughter was playing outside and came racing in for the camera, announcing that she had “found something beautiful!” and ran back outside to take her picture. The phone rang, and I didn’t get to ask what beautiful thing she found. It wasn’t until just now when I downloaded my hummingbird pictures that I saw what she took a picture of: a dandelion in the ruddy patch next to our sidewalk. I think she really did find something beautiful… not the dandelion itself, but rather the part of her soul that sees beauty in places other people may not.
