Yes, our little hummingbird in our backyard sycamore tree has had two babies this week! We can’t see into the nest, but can see two tiny beaks peeking out from the rim. And at the same time, I’ve had a plant — not a cactus, not a euphorbia, can’t remember the right genus, but it’s name is Orient Express, and the flower it has produced knocked me out yesterday morning. I’d been watching the unassuming bloom form for a few days and started to photograph it. Monday evening it looked quite plump, but still tight and I had no idea what to expect. Having trouble posting a pic, will do later!
