As I watch a hummingbird flit across the patio, I remember that I’ve been searching for at least 8 years for a hummingbird nest. Perhaps this will be my year! I find myself wandering through a hummingbird garden in Austin, TX. While I search for tiny nests, I cannot believe all the other beauty to notice that I almost ignored.
Two different bright lizards scurry by my feet, and I see birds of all kinds flying from limb to limb in the garden. I examine the bright Texas wildflowers.
I remember that living with flair means I keep my eye on new goals in nature while not focusing so much on that aim that I forget the scurrying beauty all around.
