The Dog Ate My Blog Yesterday

That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

So I I almost didn’t take any pictures of the hummingbird that was eating from my zinnia flowers. I knew there was a reason to plant them in the backyard. So I could see them! But this was the first time I saw one feeding there. I was out in the backyard with the baby the other day to see the squirrel, and a hummer was on another flowering plant. We were so close, no camera. Sigh.

I took this one from a long distance away, through my window and a tomato plant. And I didn’t have my controls set for the higher speed hummingbird, not enough time before he was gone. But I thought I’d chance getting some pictures anyway. Despite all the problems, they turned out half decent. Since then, I moved the tomato plant!

And I really got to town on the Red Wolf Novella. I wrote 4300 words yesterday. I also finished one of the two blogs I needed to send in. Baby is here today, we’re supposed to go to the mailbox, which is way far away and I’m making her walk, not ride her stroller, an hour at the pool, longer if she is good, shorter if she is not, and the grocery store. Hopefully, it will all wear out baby, and I can reach another 1,000 words today. I took care of her on Saturday after 2 hours at the pool and what happened? She DID NOT SLEEP. They picked her up at 6 pm, and I’m sure she went right to sleep. lol

All right, got to get the dogs out, fed, out, and ready for my granddaughter’s arrival. You have fun now, you hear?

Done! Done! Done! And Hummingbird Flowers!

It’s always such a relief to finish edits on a book so Flight of the White Wolf is back to the editor. Woohoo! But it doesn’t end there. It will come back two more times for edits. At least.

That means next on the agenda is the grocery store.

After that??? Back to The Bounty Hunter Gets Her Wolf. I’m nearing the end on word count, yet have a long ways to go to finish it. It’s fun stopping though to work on a finished book, reminding me I can do it with this one too.

In the meantime, I got my butterfly and hummingbird plants planted too, and dug up more grass that I need to remove to create another flowerbed.

These are: Silky Red Asclepias, Cuphea Pink Bunny Face, Ruttya Fruticosa Jammy Mouth, and Salvia Dancing Flame, Pentas where the hummingbird is hovering, Vermillion Firecracker Cuphea where the hummingbird is feeding.

I had a hummingbird hovering over the birdseed dish yesterday once I got the plants in the ground. Now I just need to figure out the settings for speedy little birds and get to photographing! But AFTER I get groceries and work on Bounty.

Have a fun-filled hummingbird day!

Hard Drive Exchange Tonight!–Butterfly/Hummingbird Flowers

My computer crashes constantly. I am getting it up some times, like now, so trying to post my blog before it crashes again, and working on my mss until it crashes again. It’s still faster than using a typewriter. 🙂

columbine (540x640)

columbineYou can see with a little bit of sunlight, the plant is beginning to turn a bit green. 🙂

columbine with fairy houseI’ve never grown so many different kinds of flowers. These are all butterfly/hummingbird flowers. But when I first got them home, the top picture is what they looked like. They still look like really bizarre alien plants, don’t they? It’s kind of cool seeing them before they look like a real plant. Add a fairy house and now it’s not alien but a fairy world.

I have others that I’ll show their transformation as soon as they do something!

But I’m a now kind of girl and I like to see what they look like from the get-go.

This is cuphea from the Mexican Heather family. And the ACE gardener says his attracts all kinds of hummingbirds.

cupheaEsperanza 001 (640x427)This is esperanza, also supposed to be a hummingbird flowering plant. Hmmm.

I’ll show more pictures as they progress and then IF they really attract anything, hopefully I’ll get pictures of those too!

Have a great day. Off to write really, really fast before my computer crashes again.
