Just a simple frailing tune. I had most of this composed awhile back but finally got around to adding a final part so thought I’d record and post it. In Double C tuning (gCGCD).

Busy, hovering little beauty, isn't it!

Love to see them darting around my backyard, too infrequently unfortunately.

Well, now you can play your awesome little tune and close your eyes and imagine them! We have flowers that attract them every year, but I can't pinpoint exactly when they show up. With a hummingbird feeder they compete, but with flowers they're more neighborly towards each other.

I like this Rick. We get them living in a Bradford Pear next to the back deck and have flowers that attract them. They dart around our heads once in a freatwhile in summer the dissapear into the tree. I cannot spot them in there. It's like they dissapear.

Thanks Richard. I think when I go landscape shopping this spring I'll try to get something that attracts butterflies and hummingbirds. I've had bird feeders in the past but the squirrels always seem to get at them. Have to find a way to prevent that.

My wife Roz goes to the beauty parler anf gets hair. She puts it in stockings to make little bags and hangs them around our garden to keep the squirrels out. It's the only thing that works.

That's interesting. Something had been munching the tomatoes right on the vine in our garden. I eventually spied chipmunks doing it. My son said he had read that chili powder would keep squirrels away so I thought I'd try it. I sprinkle it at the bottom of the plants and also mix it with water and sprinkle it over the plants. It seems to have worked pretty well.

Your one of those guys who make me envious of playing well...that's good...lovely tune...is there a tab?

Thanks a lot Richard. Sorry but I don't know how to write tab; I have enough trouble reading it. Fortunately I have a good ear so that's how I figure things out.
