My husband has spent several days trying to photograph a pair 
of hummingbirds that come frequently to a feeder in the back 
right off of his office. They will fly right up, hover and look you 
in the eye but they seriously resist being photographed!!!
(Fall is coming here so I am assuming that this will be our 
very last attempt to capture them on film this year!)

Kuri squash Pic

Red Kuri squash is the small deep orange one to the 
left of the large (red warty) in the middle 
and above the blue squash.

Kuri Risotto

With fall coming soon upon us here, the 
High Country stupendous squash will be back!  
North Carolina grows delicious squash of all kinds 
of varieties, more than I was aware of ever existed! 
Featured here (last night's super supper; "Yum yum!") 
Roasted Kuri (squash) Risotto (with shallots, onion 
and white wine; Parmesan cheese on top too....) 
This was a truly mouth-watering savory experience 
if I don't say so myself! (I wish I had the aroma 
add-on pak for my pc for you!!!!!!!)

Hi y'all!
