It’s the first day of Spring, but that’s not why the terrible wind and rain storm that blew in yesterday and today turned into not just wind and rain but also snow (yes, I saw a few flakes) and hail (seems like it hailed every time I had to go outside to go somewhere), is poorly timed.
No, it’s bad timing because the hummingbird from last year, that built a nest in our tree, and then had a major bad storm destroy that nest with the two tiny eggs, is back. She has a brand new nest. We put a new hummingbird feeder in the front yard Friday night for her so she doesn’t have to go far. But all weekend I’ve wanted to go out and throw a blanket out over the whole tree to protect her.
She’s still there this evening. We’ll check in the morning. There’s a freeze warning for tonight. I’ve pulled my lettuce and tomatoes under the patio and against the house to protect them. But I can’t do anything to help the hummingbird but cross my fingers. Could you cross yours too?
