Hi everyone! I have just a few brief moments to let you know that I'm enjoying some time away at the family cottage this week. The weather, thankfully, has been beautiful and we've been swimming a lot, exploring the natural surroundings and spending lots of quality time with family and friends. I should be back to a regular routine next week. In the meantime, please enjoy these beautiful photographs of a hummingbird feeding on the deck at the cottage, taken by our friend Sharron - a talented photographer. Hummingbirds are magnificent animals. They are the smallest bird on the planet and yet can see and hear better than humans with a heart rate of over 1,200 beats per minute! See you next week!
