I talked to my guy earlier today,

We were talking about hummingbirds, his Mom has quite a few hummmingbird feeders and he was filling them up with nectar.  :smileyhappy: 

I think that's so sweet.  I told him that hummingbirds are a favorrite of my Mom and that tomorrow is her birthday. I get her things with hummingbirds on it a lot.  She also likes ships and clocks.

I have so many doctor bills to pay this month that Mom said I don't have to get her anything.  :smileysad:

I wish I didn't have any bills to pay, because I would do just about anything to make her happy.  :smileyhappy:

Do you have any Wishes and/or Woes today?

It is tough when those extra bills come rolling in. Maybe you can make a nice dinner for your mom or just delay the gift giving.

We used to have hummingbird feeders, but they got so sticky from the sugar water and then the ants would find them. I ended up throwing them away in September at the end of the season. Now we have butterfly bushes and other things that attract them naturally. My mom likes hummingbirds and cardinals.

I told her that I'd be getting her something the next time we go anywhere.  :smileyhappy: She liked that!  :smileyhappy: 

My Mom likes cardinals too.  :smileyhappy:

I use to grow irises and we had a trumpet vine they loved.  :smileyhappy:
