Tunes without the words

Shado, keeping his eyes on me.

Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul,
And sings the tune--without the words,
And never stops at all.
(from the poem Hope by Emily Dickinson)

I sought more time in the garden today. 
More birds, more songs without words.
  (one of many bees!)

And Sealaura's tomato plants continue to produce crop after crop.

Stunning photos and one of my favorite poems. It was a good day to post this since we are covered with snow. I need to see the hope of blue skies and spring.

Your world is quite a contrast from mine - it's nice to see some blue skies and sun!

Very appealing shots! I'm not sure I realized hummingbirds ever sat still long enough to be photographed by mere mortals.

I like the Dickinson. In and out, right now. A bullet. IN this case, a velvet bullet? Feathery bullet?
