Hummingbirds

One of the many things I’m enjoying in our new home is the daily visits from hummingbirds who come to help themselves to the nectar on our roof garden. The UK is too cold a climate for these little creatures but they seem to thrive here.

Of the 65 or so species of hummingbird around the world, about half can be found here in Mexico. I loved reading this piece in the local media which shows just how loved and prized the birds are here in San Miguel de Allende…there is even an annual festival to celebrate their presence in the community.

Taking time to pause and learn about not just the culture and people of our new home, but the flora and fauna is proving to be such a treat!
