Do you believe in Magic? Hummingbird magic?

Last summer Edward put up a hummingbird feeder on the side of the house. Nothing happened. He attached bright red streamers to it. Still nothing happened. While visiting my sister in Ann Arbor, I picked up a cloisonné hummingbird. I figured that we could at least have one hummingbird around, or perhaps if this little object was imbued with any magic it might call to the hummingbirds in the environment and they would come to Edward's feeder. We put it up and that day hummingbirds started coming.

A couple of weeks ago, when we'd heard the hummingbirds were back, Edward put the feeder back up. Nothing. Then I remembered the magical cloisonné creature so we hung it up again and sure enough, the hummingbirds are back at Edwards feeder!

Got to have a little magic in our lives!
