Sounds of summer ...

This morning I woke up early to the sound of a Humming bird feeding
just outside our bedroom window.  I took in that moment, thinking how
I love the sounds of summer.  I love it when I hear my neighbors
mowing their lawns, I love the sound of children laughing  as they play
 outside  and how I love the sound of Humming birds zipping here
and there pausing only to get a drink. 
When the kids were little I placed Humming bird feeders outside each of
 their bed room windows  so they too could take joy in the buzzing sounds.
The hangers for those feeders are still in place ...
 and each spring the feeders go up. 
Every 3 days I go from window to window, changing the sweetened
water  - remembering the days when my children were little and I smile.

A picture of our naughty little dog enjoying a lazy Saturday
afternoon in the shade. 
He loves drinking from the water hose as I water my flowers,
chasing his ball in the grass, keeping guard for that ol' black cat
and his afternoon treat.

Old Man Winter - please stay away for a good while.
