In A Fog

Sorry if you came here hoping to see amazing photos of fog (although I managed to find one pitiful offering from my archives). Alas, it's my brain that's filled with fog, and believe me, you wouldn't want to see a picture of that even if I could somehow produce it. Brain fog is the worst!

In other news, our ruby-throated hummingbird is back to entertain us for another season. And the cedar waxwings have not stripped our holly berry trees just yet. The lazy, nest-stealing brown-headed cowbirds have arrived. I have pictures, but I can't get it together enough to post them. I also saw a red-breasted nuthatch in the holly tree yesterday afternoon, but he would not pose for me. Rude!

Well, I'm off to buy some new towels at Macy's. I washed Double D's new black jeans with our gold towels which turned the towels gray. I knew better, too! Darn brain fog. I'm blaming everything that goes wrong on that!
This is a park behind my house on 1/26/13.

Not sure if this is the same hummer.
Out of the three feeders located around the yard, he/she loves the one hanging on the palm tree.

I am sorry you have the "brain fog"...no fun...I have bronchitis and that's no fun either...I guess we could start a club....

Hope you feel better soon...

Nancy said...

I must be the one with brain fog..I thought you started off no birds but it was no fog...Go figure my brain is full of drugs for all this congestion.....Maybe we will be better tomorrow....

Buttons said...

Oh I cannot believe you said that these are incredible fog photos. I like your fog brain. Too bad about the towels:) B

If your brain fog produces that kind of pictures,than it can't be all that bad. Beautiful foggy scene and the Hummer pictures are lovely.

Coloring Outside the Lines said...

Oh wow, it is time to get the hummer feeders out, isn't it?

Tina said...

Beautiful humming bird shots! Have fun shopping for those towels!

TexWisGirl said...

laughing at the laundry - you poor thing! :)

Shug said...

Brain fog can be so confusing!!! Seriously, it is a real pain when our brains temporarily go down. Oh, I just get so mad at myself when I accidentally wash the wrong things together. Makes for a headache.

Cindy said...

These are all beautiful. Love the fog and the humming birds are super. I especially like the one on the Crape Myrtle branch.

I love foggy scenes! Very pretty shots of your sweet hummingbird, Gail!

hootnonny said...

Not to mention lint on DD's black jeans!

HansHB said...

Such a nice serie of shots, - lovely to see!

HOOTIN ANNI said...

Oops...if you have two comments from me it's 'cause Blogger is also in a brain fog....I got an error msg, the first attempt to publish my comment.

Anyway, in short, I thanked you for posting the hummingbird images 'cause it reminded me to clean, and hang [just one so far] the HB feeder.

And.......thanks for the input on the Noah Project.

Gail, "brain fog" is definitely part of my world at (too many) times ... and I bet that you and I aren't the only ones! You unfogged enough to find some beautiful hummers; wonderful pictures as always.

Smile, you'll work your way out of the cotton wool!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

And you needed new towels anyway didn't you? ;>)!!

Wally Jones said...

Haven't you heard? Gray towels are all the rage! :)

And Hummingbirds are ALWAYS in style, in or out of the fog!

I enjoyed your post!

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

Ugh brain fog stinks. Your pictures however are wonderful!

RNSANE said...

We all suffer from brain fog from time to time - and living in the San Francisco area, I get real fog a lot as well.

Your photos of the hummingbird are incredible

Tree Hugger - Suzan said...

Hilary said...

Mercury is still in retrograde AND brain fog! And yet you produce such gorgeous photos. We should all have such fog.

Gone Country said...

Stunning photos!

Brain fogs are horrible. Hope yours clears up soon... I've been in a blog fog lately. Hmmm, maybe I'll post about that, ha!

Deborah Kay at The Paint Splash said...

You are right about the brain fog. Love the pictures of the hummers. Blessings, Debbie

Barbara Shallue said...

I know that brain fog all too well. Hope things clear up for you, soon! Beautiful photos, anyway!!

Barb Brookbank said...

Well, I love your first fog photo. Sorry about the brain fog, but I so understand...

mick said...

Great photos of the Hummingbird. They are always beautiful.

Jacquelineand.... said...

Ah the fog.....I'm far too familiar with it. I just say that zombies ate my brain, lol.

Your hummingbird shots are beautiful; I hope smiles make their way to your door soon.

Brian King said...

Fantastic hummingbird shots! We'll start seeing them in June or July. Love the first photo! That's gorgeous!

Amy Burzese said...

That is a lovely fog shot, and of course, the little hummers are great. (I'm in a fog all the time, BTW.)

acreativeharbor.com said...

These are fantastic photos ~ Wow!

We all have 'foggy brain days' ~ enjoy ^_^

Linda said...

I love it that your "archived" fog picture is from two months ago. :) It's a beauty, and it doesn't seem to have deteriorated at all over time. Your hummer photos are always a treat, too.

I'm just recovering from a week or so of "the crud," and my brain hasn't felt up to posting anything new on the blog. Soon, I hope.

Gary said...

Beautiful series!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

Charlotte Wilson said...

Ha! I just wrote a post on "Blog fog" or actually i call it Blog Block.
Love your birds. Is it too early to put out hummingbird feeders?

Linda R said...

I know all to well about brain fog. You are to funny.. Love your photos this morning. You know I am all about humming birds. LOVE THEM...

Hugs~

Renae at simple sequins said...

Dang brain-fog. I suffer from that way too much. Oh well, today is a new sunny day and perhaps it will stay that way all day today. IT'S SPRING HERE, YAY!!

Those hummer photos are AMAZING!!!

bailey-road.com said...

Lovely shots of the hummingbird!

Kathy said...

Love that little hummer that looks like he's been dipped in melted frost. Our hummers have not yet returned but the waxwings came and stripped us of all our berries in two days. Now they're headed your way. Last year we had a flock of about 20. This year there were probably over a hundred. The day was one of those where the sky was just white and I got zero good pics of them! Our first bluebonnet and Indian paintbrush bloomed today! That means butterflies and clover very soon!

Rambling Woods said...

Oh..I get lost in the fog sometimes too.. hope it clears soon. These are beautiful photos..too soon for the little hummers here but looking forward to them...Michelle

Deanna said...

Brain fog...been there, done that, no fun. Ahhh, I see your little hummer has returned for another summer of great shots. Hope your fog clears soon!! No fun being foggy!!

Patrice said...

Love seeing your hummers, Gail!

Jori said...

Sweetest hummers! I hope your brain fog dissipates soon. I swear men's clothes has more dye on them. My husbands colors always seems to ruin stuff more often than mine.

Stunning, lovely, charming little Hummingbirds and your images are wonderful!

Laura Delegal - Leroy Photography said...

I'm feeling a bit in a fog too--too often life's storms just drain you. Love that you've got hummers. I put out sugar water as soon as they hit the coast, but I haven't had even one. I guess my home is only on the southern migration. :(

Regina said...

Wow how amazing!

Beautiful world.

Have a great week.

Brain fogs are the worst! I actually walked around the Walmart parking lot for a good 10 minutes trying to find my car cause, well, gee, I totally forgot where I parked...I'm blaming it on brain fog too! LOL On another note...lovely images as always.... Big hugs, xoxo
