hummers & color

I've seen up to 3 different hummingbirds in my new garden, so far!  Seems
trivial, but coming from an inner city garden where there were no
hummingbirds, I'm gloriously happy.  There are still no swathes or bursts of
color anywhere in the yard but what they did visit were delphiniums, black
hollyhocks and a volunteer crimson colored sweet pea.

What I found quite fascinating is that they seemed to come for the plum
tree, where they would perch sometimes for over 5 minutes.  I was too
enthralled watching through binoculars to bother trying to get photos.
