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 (

Nearly Home!

We left Eleuthera may 16. The photo shows our plane and the northern part of the island.

We  moved slowly through Florida, Georgia, and the Carolinas, and are nearly back on Long Island. One of our most interesting stops was at Bok Tower Gardens, in Lake Wales (south-central Florida, east of Tampa). You can see the tower above - 205 feet high atop 300 foot Iron Mountain, the highest spot in Florida (particularly striking because the approaches are so low and flat). Here are a few images from the garden, the first showing Claire under a live oak branch (my favorite tree and person in the world).
