BASICS: "Hummingbirds.....where is the person, I ask, who, on observing this glittering fragment of the rainbow, would not pause, admire, and turn his mind with reverence..." (J. J. Audubon).
This is a blog about my summer life at the Baiting Hollow Hummingbird Sanctuary, at my winter garden, Calypso, in the Bahamas, and aspects of life in general.
This private sanctuary is now permanently closed to the general public, as a result of a lawsuit brought by a neighbor. Only my friends and personal guests may visit (paul.adams%stonybrook.edu).

Monday was my seventieth birthday, which Claire and I celebrated in Baiting Hollow and in a couple of our favorite spots on the North Fork (Horton Point Lighthouse and Orient Village). Here's a short video of us enjoying the climbing rose "Frances Lester" at the sanctuary.
