The Big Chill

We have just gone through two of the coldest nights EVER in Tucson. Here’s my pond:

Here’s the poor dead hummingbird that succumbed to hypothermia yesterday:

There are a few hummers around today, fighting and feeding. I think my grapefruit tree is dead. It looks really awful. I can’t even bear to think about the hummingbirds out in the wild that have no source of nectar but frozen flowers. Sad, sad, sad.
