Left the house this AM at 6:30 to pick up a 16 passenger van in NJ.Drove 10 mile to town. Picked up the Jitney to Manhattan. 3hrs later was standing on the corner of 86th and 3rd waiting for a limo .5 min. later it took me to Little Ferry NJ to get the van.Hopped in the van drove the 120 miles back to the Shelter Island ferry .A 20 min ride later I was on the Island. Dropped off the van.Back to the ferry as a walk on .Got off the boat and walked 500 ft to my truck that I had left off 8.5 hrs earlier and was home buy 3:30
Whew!!!, that was a long day.

New Fans

I think I have posted this picture before. With all the rain we have had this spring I just wanted to say that these fan-tastics have worked perfectly .They must open a close all day long with every passing shower.Yesterday it rained all day and they were closed tight as a whales ass! ( water tight) .This morning when I left for work before the sun was completely up they were open and ready to go .I just walked past them on my way in and they are circulating air beautifully.

This is the same rhodo seen in the feeder post .How could any Hummingbird resist? I don't even know if the feed on the nectar . Most rhodos and azaleas have toxins in them

I just love these little buggers. Things have been cool and damp this spring .I don't know if this has led to a shortage of them .There are plenty of flowers around but I only see a female very early in the AM and just before dark .I know they have to eat all day long so I have no idea where they go .
Maybe they are feeding on the real thing during the day
