One of these days, or one of these weekends, I really ought to do what I said I was going to do and get out in the yard and cut down weeds and grasses. My back porch is completely overgrown with blackberry brambles, and I probably should hack that back, too. The way things are now, I canít even use my back door, and thereís no way I can sit on the porch and read, the way Iíve done in summers past.
But I think Iíll leave the brambles the way they are for a little while longer. Theyíre currently sporting white blossoms, and theyíve become the best hummingbird feeder Iíve ever had. I can sit in my recliner in front of the TV and see the little hummers hovering and drinking from the blackberry blooms. In fact, I can watch them through the sliding glass door, and also through the other two windows on the east side of the house. For the last couple of weeks, itís been a daily show.
