Hummingbirds At Daughter Hawthorne's.

Daughter Hawthorne called me yesterday afternoon,
almost breathless. "Mama, guess what I saw in my backyard today ?!!?" I calmly responded ... "a hummingbird?" Right and wrong answer. It was a hummingbird. And I shouldn't have guessed it and gotten it right. Not right away. Not so quickly. But I don't have a self-edit button. I kinda burst Daughter Hawthorne's bubble. I didn't mean to do that. But then, she responded with, "Mama, how do you always know ?!!" Mamas just know. Don't we?
Here's the picture Daughter Hawthorne took on her phone and sent to me. I love her photograph. Red, white, and blue. With a hummer. God Bless America.
