Butterfly houses and Hummingbirds

Ahh..Sunday!  A blessed, peaceful day!  Hubby finished the little Butterfly house he made for the garden and it looks so cute there among the last of summers flowers by the shed.  The hummingbird has been here all day, buzzing in and out to drink.  We love seeing them.  The butterflies were in the Lantana all day and I am hoping to catch them looking over the house--perhaps tomorrow.
Hubby painted this little house with acrylic outdoor paint and did it free hand from his imagination-Love it!  It is so cheerful and bright!

This little "Hummer" was just as cute as she could be as she visited the nectar several times throughout the day.  Such a joy to watch! 

             Such Beauty...

Thank you God for Hummingbirds
  And all your creatures dear.
We are very blessed to have them
   around us so very near.
Thank you for all the creatures
  that bless our humble space
Each time we gaze upon their beauty
We catch a glimpse of Your beautiful face.

Your butterfly house is so pretty, and your hummer pictures are amazing! I've been trying all day to get a picture of them feeding at my cardinal flowers. I sat at the patio table, with the camera at the ready, but every time I went to pick it up, they buzzed away!
