This morning, sitting at my writing desk, I watch the hummingbirds outside my study window.

 

 

 

 

 

They take turns, perching on the skeletal remains of a foxglove and peering in at me.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I would like to think that they're interested in my writing--

What's my new novel about?

Will it feature a hummingbird hero?

Would I consider it?--

 

 

 

 

 

but I suspect they're really just sticking close to the feeder.
