Humming Bird - Texas

The rain has passed us by the past couple days, so this morning I watered the rosebushes early.

The hose was a tangled mess, and so I just aimed it high over one of the rosebushes. The stream of water attracted a hummingbird. He approached slowly, then flew into the stream of water for a quick shower. Would have made a terrific photograph!

Besides watering, my other yard work project is raking the pine needles. It’s amazing how many fall, coating the gravel. Some people hire a guy to blow the needles, but my lot is small, and a rake works fine.
