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).

Here are some more photos from the journey north. The one above shows me in the garden at "El Retiro", the former name of what is now Pinewood Estate, part of Bok Tower Gardens. Bok was a publisher and Buck, who built "El Retiro" was a vice president at Bethlehem Steel, back when american steel was big. And below I'm admiring a tree fern at Bok Tower.
