We've had some rain the past couple of days but I thought it was about over. I went out to feed the donkeys this morning and everything is soaking wet, including Harry and Gunny. Poor little guys, they looked pitiful. They must've been caught in a downpour because normally they go in their shelter when it rains.
Yesterday morning dawned just after the coldest part of the storm. This little hummer was sitting at the feeder shivering. I was a little concerned but watched him for a while and saw him fly away after filling his tank.
The wind and rain has knocked off several of the lilac blossoms, and I noticed yesterday that the Mockingbirds are munching on them too. I love those birds but I wish they'd find something else to eat since my 2014 lilac blossoms are reaching the end of life already.
I could paper an entire wall with photos of my hummingbirds and lilacs. Yesterday I was standing right next to the large lilac bush, soaking in the pretty and the awesome fragrance. Above me, a hummingbird was buzzing around. All of my senses were delighted at that moment. Do you have moments like that when you just want to freeze time for a little while and soak it in?
I hope Spring has finally landed at your place, or at least is right around the corner. I'm looking forward to all of your photos on your blogs. Happy Wednesday!

Baby, it's been cold outside. I know, not Iowa cold or Upstate New York cold, but cold still the same. Merry Winter!
