If we were having coffee, I would share the cream and sugar. I would tell you that the smooth and sweet parts of life dilute the bitter.
If we were having coffee, I would talk about the past. I would dream about the future. I would savor the present.
If we were having coffee, I would pour another cup. I would tell you that everyone deserves a second chance at happiness.
If we were having coffee, I would smile and hope that you smiled back.

I thought the hummingbirds had already headed south. When another blogger, suburbanferndaleark, posted an action picture of two hummingbirds, I made the comment that I hadn’t seen any of the tiny birds at my house for several days. I was missing the satisfaction of glimpsing their long beaks, glistening feathers and furtive glances through the camera lens.
This week, I was elated to discover that hummingbirds were still coming to the feeder in my dogwood tree! I saw this little gem resting on a branch, preening its feathers between drinks of nectar. She would zip in, hover, flutter around the feeder and drink her fill.
She put on quite an airshow! I was happy that I was able to capture this picture!
As long as the birds keep stopping by, fresh nectar will be waiting, and I will be enjoying the show.
