She arrived today.  On time.  On time being the 3rd weekend of May … more or less.  A bit less this year.  A few days before the 3rd weekend in May.  You can set your watch by her arrival, they say.

Who is she?

You know, don’t you?

The first Ruby-throated Hummingbird of the season to make it to my feeders.

Yesterday I bought fuchsia plants (for the hummers to sip nectar from in my garden) for planting this weekend.

The 3rd weekend of May.

Just in time.
