I'm a bit sad as I think the hummingbirds are beginning to thin out, probably an indicator that the migration has begun. :( It seems a bit early to me. I'm thinking the thinning usually starts around mid-September. The consumption of nectar has dropped from around 1.5 gallons per day to something less than a gallon. I hope this is not an indicator of an early winter. I like cold weather, but I don't want 14 months of winter!! Anyway, I'll watch to see what the "Hummingbird Bar" looks like over the next few days.
Jazi seems to think I make the bed every morning just for her benefit. Soon after I make it, this is what I find ....
Spoiled little girl, that's what she is! I often come home in the afternoon to find the pillows moved, usually forming a perfect nest for a furry girl! I guess I should expect it, however, as she is The Princess! She thinks she is The Queen, but I get to be that!
Last night I saw this little moth resting just beneath the lights on my deck. You'll have to click on this photo to see him.
Pretty little thing! He's a very pale green, and almost translucent wings. I have no idea what he is, but I thought he was worthy of a portrait as one of the temporary residents of Chez Lynilu!
I'm going to go hunting for crystals this weekend with some friends. I'm eager, as I've never done this before. The place that is supposed to be good for this is very close to my house, probably 3-5 crow-flying miles, or about 10 miles driving. I hope I find at least one! It will be fun to know where to look for them, and I might well go back with one or two of the pups for a walk-about in the future.
I'm very tired this evening. I've had a very busy week, not a bad one, but I'm ready for the weekend. Just one more day!!
