There is serendipity in today’s prompt!  The ruby-throated hummingbird always makes its first appearance in my flower garden on or about July 25.  I plant many flowers to entice these tiny gems to come and stay for the rest of the summer.  Many of the flowers they love are bright red, like the lobelia.  I am blessed to have the hummingbirds visit me until the first week in October, when they fly south for the winter. The first one arrived right on schedule yesterday!
