More Pleasure Than A Present

A  L  O  H  A !
"Sprinkle joy."

      Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Do not be afraid of 
showing your affection. 
Be warm and tender,
 thoughtful and affectionate. 
Men are more helped by 
sympathy, than by service; 

- love is more than money, 
and a kind word will give 
more pleasure than a present."
                  John Lubbock

Lovely little colobrí. What is it about hummers that makes us melt in their presence? Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.
