I love hummingbirds!
In Native American lore hummingbirds are the symbol for joy and the good things in life. However, for me, they seem to be a symbol of change. I never was particularly aware of them while I was busy raising kids and working. They didn’t become part of my life until I semi-retired and we moved to a small acreage horse property – a big change for us. To go from the house down to the barn, we had to walk through some large Grevelia bushes covered with small red flowers. And every time we passed through, the hummingbirds would buzz and zip by us, upset about being disturbed. One of the fun things about our new house that I wish I paid more attention to. A few years later we re-landscaped, the bushes were torn out and we never saw our humming friends any more.
