Watching Red

The other day, my brother Wesley sat on his front steps & watched a hummingbird closely eyeing his red car. The tiny bird next keyed in on a red helmet next door, in front of my home. She then moved to a huge red Christmas bow. It is part of one of my son's woodworking projects. He watched as she darted around the corner & out of sight.
I was out back, lounging in the pool & watching when she zoomed into my view. She loves our red cannis, bee balm, trumpet vines, & lilies, among other garden treasures. Now, I understand why the hummingbird feeder section of the stores are full of red items.
