What a nice shot! I love hummingbirds and I can't wait for the pool to finish so I can place the feeders back where they belong...Christine

Love that blue! I had fun taking pictures of hummingbirds and other birds last weekend at my SIL's house.

I love the blue you have selected to share with us but the hummingbird photo is extraordinary. Thank you for sharing both images with us. Have a wonderful day and enjoy the coming holiday weekend.

Oh,Mizz Dixie..what pretty blues you have for us today. And, Hazlenut coffee..especially in a pretty cup, is very special, indeed.
We have very few hummers around here. The ones I do see are just passing thru. I do believe I;ll go right to Walmart today and get a feeder, tho. Just in case a family of hummers are passing thru. Thanks for reminding me, dear one.
love, bj

Hey Dixie,

Those hummingbirds are so fun to sit and watch. I can remember watching them at my grandmother's and my aunt's. They always had bird feeders scattered about.

Glad you liked the Memphis pics. We can never visit there without eatting at Rendenzvous. That's my hubby's fav.

I was looking at a book on the history of the Peabody hotel. I read where they did a huge sale in 1977 and sold everything in the hotel. Can you imagine owning a piece of history like that?

I've been reading up on the Exchange building. I read that old man Wolf had a department store in the bottom and he and his wife lived on the top floor. They couldn't have a baby. He fooled around with one of his salesclerks and she had his baby. They took it away from her after the baby was born and fired her. She was never allowed back in the building again. Until one night she slipped through the door and walked the stairs and until she reached his floor. They said she jumped to her death. But rumor has it, he pushed her off the balcony.

Did you hear that one? Maybe you know if better than me. Okay. I didn't mean to ramble. Have a good one, Dixie.

Oh how I have missed your visits! For some reason, I couldn't get back to your site, by clicking on my followers icon! Pictures are beautiful!

bella shabby said...

Hi Dixie , I came for the pretty pics and then I saw your book list. I love Robert Crais' Elvis Cole series. He just can't write fast enough for me. What did you think of Liberty and Tyranny ? I started to get it but then thought it may be over my head! Hope you are keeping cool , Sue

Candy said...

Good idea on painting my treasure white, hadn't even crossed my mind.

We got a nice little rain this morning. I was down at the neighborhood gate doing a little decorating for the holiday. Nice and cool.

Wish we could take a ride in that car ;-)

Love hazelnut coffee. I'll bet it tastes even better in this lovely blue mug. Great "capture" of the hummer.
