Saturday Sparks Link Party 525

Welcome to Saturday Sparks 525! 

 Starting off today's party with a lucky capture!


I was trying to take a photo of my lovely hanging basket to share with you all, but mother nature had a better idea.

As if on cue, this sweet humming bird photo bombed the shot.

I love a good surprise and this one was a beauty!

  5. Suzanne, I LOVED the hummingbird picture! I don't have a feeder up this year, but they seem to love the blue plumbago flowers growing in the urns on the porch. Thanks so much for featuring our trip to Kings Canyon. Such a stunning national park with so much to enjoy.

  12. Oh how wonderful to catch a photo of a hummingbird! I was watching one hovering about my delphiniums the other day (which is a rarity in our yard) and sadly my phone was charging inside the house so I missed the photo opportunity. It was a long weekend here in Canada so I'm very late to the party this week. I hope your week is off to a good start, Suzanne!

    1. It was a fun surprise, Marie (I'm assuming this is Marie, as you came up as 'Anonymous')! My husband tells me that 'late is my middle name', but I choose to go with the 'better late than never' scenario. 😊 Happy Summer ~ Suzanne.
