Sweet Hummingbird & Lovely Rose

Oh I love my little hummingbirds...they've been busy lately..The males are SO territorial...the guys have been fighting for about two weeks. Even though I have five feeders, they seem to think it's only enough for ONE male & ONE female!! They even get mad at me sometimes if I get near the feeder. LOL!! He obviously wants to "bite" the hand that feeds him..silly boy!!
One picture shows my hummer sitting on the branch where he can view his food..and protect it.

This rose is one I planted last year from Heirloom Roses, I forgot it's name, I'll find it and post, but isn't it lovely??? The most wonderful shade of apricot?? peach?? pink?? OH it is gorgeous and smells so good. If only my soil wasn't clay here, I know it would be BURSTING with blooms.

A Rose By Any Other Name Would Smell As Sweet

I can't believe how wonderful your hummingbird pictures are and that you could even get a picture at all! I have one around my house and he is just tooooo fast to even get a glimpse of it. -- Your rose is gorgeous!

I love hummers!! I wish I could attract them to come to my house, but I out up a feeder, and none came. They are so much fun to watch, and interesting personalities. You got some wonderful pics of yours, and the rose is lovely! :)
