Let's hope this video works- because I finally was able to catch one of the hummingbirds! The nest of finches were still there on the front porch the day we returned from a 4 day visit (first this year!!) to Cape May, NJ. They were quite scrunched in the nest and had all their feathers, and by the following day they had flown the nest. I'm glad all 5 survived.
It was SO good to get to the beach again. However, it was a very different and unusual trip. First of all, I got Bill's cold and got quite sick with a fever, very sore throat, cough and laryngitis. I did take a Covid test to be sure I didn't have it as I certainly didn't want to risk exposing anyone in Cape May. To this day I still have a scratchy throat and slight cough:(. Here are a few pics of the strange, very foggy 4 days we had once we arrived:
Here we are standing on the promenade- where is the ocean???? You couldn't see anything of it until you walked to the shoreline!

I use a die cut ag that I glued button paper on (old paper from my stash). The pretty textured butterfly is one of 3 that Valerie had sent me as happy mail some time ago. Paper doll and Small Talk sticker- Tim Holtz.
Speaking of tags, I made a tag last week for Tag Tuesday and decided to make a journal page for it:
And that's a wrap for this week. I will also link to Rain's Thursday Art date this week. I saw that Kathy whos hosts Food Wednesdays is going to have a link up on the first Wednesday of each month so I will join her and friends then on June 1st! Much as I do enjoy following fellow bloggers and challenges I find it difficult to keep up in the summer months, but I do appreciate all you do!
And if anyone is going away to celebrate Memorial Day weekend/Monday, enjoy!, and please be safe.
