Hummingbird in the garden

What a summer it has been here in Victoria.  Record setting heat and beautiful blue skies. Along with the heat came a record number of forest fires.  I feel like I missed the entire month of August.  The fire smoke was unbelievable this year and every morning the sky turned gloomy and smoky.  The smoke has now cleared I look forward to a few more weeks of summer to enjoy.  Here is a hummingbird in my garden amidst the remaining blossoms of a lipstick plant.
