With all of our city's flowering plants, we have many hummingbirds. However, they are rarely bright and colorful. Usually drab, brown and grey.

They are, however, fearless. I can be working in my yard and one will come within inches from me to feed off one of my fuchsias. It pays me no mind. They are pretty amazing birds. I rarely see one at rest like in your pic, TN.

FYI... I read this recently:

"Keep Hummingbird Feeders Clean!!!
NOTE: This is not a local photo, or even a photo taken by me at all, just info/photo I came across on Facebook and decided to share for the benefit of our neighborhood hummingbirds. Thanks for reading!

'If you put out a hummingbird feeder, and don’t clean it at least every 4-5 days, this is what happens. Keep your hummer feeders clean, or don’t put them out at all. Mildew forming inside the nectar infects their tongues, causing their tongues to swell, and they slowly starve to death. Then all the babies in their nests die as well. (Notice their tongues are out.)."

I only posted the text, as the photo was kind of depressing.

Where is TN when you need him? Sunsets and rainbows never look as bright on film as they do in person.

(A dilemma in my wording above...cameras don't have film anymore. But how else to say it?)

I think it's a Showgirl chicken:

From the forum "Backyard Chickens"

"Showgirls are a recent creation, becoming increasingly popular in the last ten years or so. They are generally the result of crossing Transylvanian Naked Necks / Turkens to Silkies. The Turken is used in the first generation to incorporate the incompletely dominant Naked Neck gene into the breeding program, then for multiple generations continue by crossing the Naked Necked chicks back to Silkies to improve type. The goal is usually a bird that is essentially a Silkie but with a naked neck (and perhaps with bowties and/or beards).

Like Silkies, the Showgirl hens are very broody and exceptional mothers, and they are often used to hatch the eggs of other breeds. Showgirl females are usually very calm, sweet and gentle birds, they usually make excellent pets, especially for children. Because of their gentle nature Showgirls may not do well in mixed flocks with breeds that have a more aggressive temperament. Their silkied feathers make them vulnerable to extreme cold, especially in wet weather, the feathered feet also require some care. They generally are not very predator aware, do not do well free ranging, and should be kept in a fenced in area. Like Silkies they are usually five toed, dark skinned, and have a walnut comb. They come in many colours, white probably being the most popular.

Details:

Breed purpose: Ornamental, Broody
Comb Type: Walnut
Broodiness: Frequent, very good mothers.
Climate Tolerance: Silkied feathers make them vulnerable in cold and wet weather.
Weight: Varies, usually bantam to small standard size, 5lbs.
Egg Productivity: Poor
Egg Size: Small
Egg Colour: Tinted / light brown"

But I think you would already know if you have one...look up chick pictures (showgirl CHICKENS only):

K- What does the term "PP" mean in respects to planting a field? A grower will say "the last 10% will be planted as PP"
Can you enlighten me on this speak? Thanks

I got as far as PP stands for Prevent Planting ("Prevent planting is the inability to plant the intended crop within the normal planting period for that crop..."). The rest is opaque to me. Something to do with risk management insurance or compensation?

My God Mel... You are such a pedant!

Are you sure that there is no "Lichtwardt" or "Singleton" in your pedigree?

No, but I think I may have a lot in common with David Gerrold (he wrote the original script for Star Trek "The Trouble with Tribbles")

“I had to learn to relax, that was the problem. Other people had always unnerved me because I thought they were continually judging me. How do I look? What kind of person do I seem? Is my voice firm enough? Am I really intelligent or just pedantic? Was that joke really funny, or am I making a fool of myself? I worried about the impression I was making. If I was shy, did they think I was being aloof and call me a snob? If I tried to be friendly, did they find me overbearing? I was always afraid that I was basically unlikable, so I wouldn't give anyone the chance to find out; or I tried too hard to be likable, and thereby proved that I wasn't.”
― David Gerrold, The Man Who Folded Himself

Thanks Mel , That really does clear things up. Makes more sense than "poppy plants".

When i was young I read a book that had the word "rendezvous in the the title. It was a book about mountain men going to the wild and all working towards the big meet up or rendezvous. That word littered every page it seemed and i pronounced it like a Navajo would and that way just does not roll off the tongue verbally or mentally. When i discovered the correct pronunciation , that book would have been more pleasant read.

Rainbows...

My Mother died at 80, 11 years ago. As is our family tradition, we buried her ashes on a hillside within a short walk from our cabin in Montana. She rests next to her parents, sister and others.

When we returned to the lake, up sprung a triple rainbow. 2 bald eagles flew by. We were mesmerized. This cabin was my mother's favorite place in the world. Weird.

I have looked for the photo, but I have not been able to locate it. Bummer.

Just now, wandering around on DT (by accident) I found a 2015 thread that had some similarities to this one. But it came first, so I guess the CT isn't really the innovative thread we all thought it was.

"A Forum Game--Hijack this Thread"
https://www.dobermantalk.com/general...ck-thread.html

I got stuck reading it...it only went for 466 posts though.

ANYWAY....this was one of the posts. I thought some of your car freaks might like it:

"Miniature W32 engine--this is just cool....



"Hand-machined, hand-built, and utterly magnificent, this engine represents 850 pieces, 632 screws/bolts, and 2,520 hours of work by someone who is verifiably a master of the craft--Patelo, as he's known to tiny engine aficionados, or Josť Manuel Hermo Barreiro as he's known to his family."

--from Fox news article."

When we returned to the lake, up sprung a triple rainbow. 2 bald eagles flew by. We were mesmerized. This cabin was my mother's favorite place in the world. Weird.

I have looked for the photo, but I have not been able to locate it. Bummer.

STJ!
Memories like that are so special.

My dad died a couple of years before my mother. She was in a coma (kidney failure) for a couple of days before she died, just 2 days after her 60th wedding anniversary. We had actually been expecting her death for several days and had talked about how weird it would be if she died on her anniversary. Anyway, we were all there with her at the end, and went straight from the hospital to her house (where we had grown up), a bit shocky still, after dark that evening.

And someone was firing off fireworks in the distance, for some unknown reason...the big kind that go up in the air spectacularly and shower down with lots of sparkles and bright colors. My brother remarked, half as a joke but also sorta seriously, that my mom and dad must be celebrating to be back together again. We paused and watched, and relived our memories of them together.

It was a special kind of moment.

The Turken is used in the first generation to incorporate the incompletely dominant Naked Neck gene into the breeding program, then for multiple generations continue by crossing the Naked Necked chicks back to Silkies to improve type. The goal is usually a bird that is essentially a Silkie but with a naked neck (and perhaps with bowties and/or beards).

Like Silkies, the Showgirl hens are very broody and exceptional mothers, and they are often used to hatch the eggs of other breeds. Showgirl females are usually very calm, sweet and gentle birds, they usually make excellent pets, especially for children. Because of their gentle nature Showgirls may not do well in mixed flocks with breeds that have a more aggressive temperament. Their silkied feathers make them vulnerable to extreme cold, especially in wet weather, the feathered feet also require some care. They generally are not very predator aware, do not do well free ranging, and should be kept in a fenced in area. Like Silkies they are usually five toed, dark skinned, and have a walnut comb. They come in many colours, white probably being the most popular.....


( ... I think DT Chicken Thread much more interesting.....)

We're out of the 90's for now and have a few days of rain and cooler temps (yippee!) so life is good, for now
Great pictures -- AGAIN TN - lol

As far as your flowers blooming out early - If I remember right - you were talking about how warm it was early down there - Then my guess is that the GDD's were met and they bloomed out - to you early .

We took the whole pack into vet, against my better judgement, based on previous visits to the large waiting room with some unruly dogs present....but DW insisted, after a bit of a squabble...

Enroute, we agreed that I would do a recon with Spock, before bringing whole pack inside. Luckily, only one dog in portable crate was inside. After getting entire pack weighed, office mgr. escorted us to the "big room" which was a triple size exam room with it's own bathroom. I had never known about or seen this "big room" before! https://www.dobermantalk.com/editpos...post&p=4074619

Anyhow, vet techs came in for preliminary checks and we decided to do Lanah's exam/shots while we were there with whole pack (one month early). Turns out this saved $$ as we were only charged for one office visit. DVM Tessa was a bit late as she was finishing up a surgery. Dogs all acted very well and calm- my DW was right, taking the whole pack was beneficial!

All our babies were pronounced healthy and I got Eva's Pet Partners Therapy Dog health screening clearance form signed, to submit online. Lanah lost 1 lb. since her last exam due to kibble/green bean diet, and well on her way back to a healthy size, for a little feisty mutt.

Did pick up some prescription shampoo for Lanah who has had chronic problems in past with allergies on her feet causing inflammation and excessive licking. We used 2x daily foot bathes in past outbreak, which knocked inflammation right down. The new shampoo is for applying to feet 2x week for maintenance/prevention.

Took a great group shot of pack and DW in exam room waiting, but haven't gotten the photo release yet...

When leaving we took pack straight out to car then squared up with bill. As I was paying, the waiting room filled up quickly with yappy, unruly dogs including two Chihuahua's that a lady was carrying in arms and slapping in face to get to settle down, right in front of the front desk staff and everyone in room! Another little ankle biter waiting was a Chi-Yorkie mix which was smooth on top and had wire hair on belly and bottom of neck- a real funny dude!

We had come and left at just the right time.....

'If you put out a hummingbird feeder, and don’t clean it at least every 4-5 days, this is what happens. Keep your hummer feeders clean, or don’t put them out at all. Mildew forming inside the nectar infects their tongues, causing their tongues to swell, and they slowly starve to death. Then all the babies in their nests die as well. (Notice their tongues are out.)."

I only posted the text, as the photo was kind of depressing.

STJ!
Yes sir, it's important to keep the feeders clean and change out the nectar every 2-3 days, especially once it gets hot. We only use home-made nectar (1 part sugar, 4 parts water), nothing else.

That's very possible, but we have 2 angel trumpet plants and one isn't blooming, while the other one is starting. These are tropical plants so we keep them in huge pots and bring them inside (one of the garage storage rooms) during the late fall, winter, and early spring). This time we had a strong grow light (just like the one you used to grow pot in your closet LOL) on them all winter so I'm wondering if that had anything to do with the early bloom?
