This weekend we were enjoying our dinner outside when we saw our new guest!
A New Hummingbird...
I was busy inside cooking the dinner.
Had all the ingredients together.
A little of this and a little of that...
Meatballs were made and ready to be placed in the beef broth, escarole, carrots, celery and onion.
Waiting for the soup to simmer...
Then it was ready!
After working in the garden, it was a perfect night to enjoy my Mom's meatball soup recipe.
Looking up, we saw a busy little
hummer making her nest.
She was in a perfect spot right under our My Secret Garden sign. Look to the right of the third glass grapes hanging from our patio.
She was so busy collecting things
to put in her nest.
She was so cute getting the nest just right.
It seemed as though she wanted our approval of a job well done.
What a nice surprise guest
to entertain us for dinner!
Then we noticed on our statuary a dove
resting on the top.
He blended right in, so
it seemed like he was part of it.
Then he turned.
and flew away...
It was a fun enjoyable dinner with all
the wonderful guests who came.
