We’ve had quite the most magical thing happen. We have had a baby hummingbird come to stay.
Meet Her Majesty.
Isn’t she a darling!
The reasons for her visit are sad. A neighborhood cat got her mom. She is almost a fledgling but not quite ready to fly yet. We know she needs more care than we can give her and we want her to have the best chance of making it. So, we have booked her into the Hummingbird Rescue Shelter who are experts on rehabilitating hummingbirds back into the wild. Lucky us, thought… they can’t take her for few days, so we get to love her for a little bit longer.
Look how sweet she is.
To keep her safe, we put her in a pretty little birdcage we happened to have on hand. Kitty added a few butterflies to make her happy.
I needle felted her a warm woolly nest to make her feel like home.
Our time with Her Majesty has been quite the most amazing thing ever.
We are all utterly in love.
She is so tiny but so lively. Her little feet and feathers are enchantingly small.
I’ll have more photos to share on Wednesday.
Blessings and magic,
