I was painting, painting, painting away and I heard a fluttering in the sunroom. I thought a bee got into the house and I ignored it for (i hate to say this) a long, long time. I figured the windows were open and it would find it’s way out again, it was a bee and what can you do??
Well, My girlfriend Rhonda came out to the Riverhouse to visit me and brought BLT’s and cupcakes. I was so surprised and excited as this was my very first visitor and guest at the riverhouse. I was a mess because I had been painting paneling all morning, but I was so happy.
I showed Rhonda all around and told her plans and projects, but when we got to the sunroom, we realized it wasn’t a bee, but a hummingbird. We tried to help it “get out”, but we made matters worse, so we left the room. After lunch we went upstairs to the sunroom and didn’t hear anything so we thought it was gone. But, no, it was trapped and laying flat down. I have never seen a motionless hummingbird and was sick. I picked it up and laid it in my hands, it was so flat and weak. I have nothing at the the riverhouse for food, the only thing with sugar was the pink frosting on the cupcakes Rhonda brought. SO, I wiped it off the cupcake and added water and with my finger I fed the bird. The long beak has a tongue that came out and drank and drank. This is the last picture I could snap before she flew away.
Later today as I was watering my garden, a Hummingbird came through for a quick second….. I hope that was the same one!! It was so beautiful!
