Theme Day: Zest


This is Sharon, a lady with a name that was easy for me to remember.  I saw her at the Desert Botanical Garden adorned with this colorful hat.  When I got closer I noticed there was a hummingbird feeder attached to the hat along with the bright flowers.  So, I asked Sharon what the story was.  She said she had injured her shoulder pretty badly and couldn't get out and do things like she was used to so she created this hat that she wore in her own garden and the hummingbirds would whiz around her head and drink from the feeder.  She decided to try it out at the Desert Botanical Garden to see if it had the same effect.  At the time I saw her, she said she hadn't attracted any birds yet.

I'd say Sharon has a real "zest" for life and for nature.   She is also very clever for figuring out a way to enjoy her garden while she was on the mend.

What a wonderful idea and this is a fantastic shot for Theme Day! My hummers buzz my head all the time, but I never thought of putting a feeder on a hat.

Fantastic! What a delightful woman, although I might wonder a bit about someone with a bunch of hummingbirds buzzing around her head! :)

Is this "zest" as in "nuts?"
