I almost thought it was a photo of a double flowering plum tree, aka Chinese Rose Tree. Now I know why the aka is what it is

Thank you everyone! here's the database entry for this rose Rose (Rosa 'Dentelle de Malines')

Joanna, that's an Anna's Hummingbird, with it's magenta red iridescent throat coloring. If you click on my avatar, and then again within my profile page, it enlarges to see it better. Whether or not you see the iridescent colors depends on the angle of the sun between you and the bird.
He was a chatty fella and a good listener too. Here's my thread from 2010 with additional photos.

Reminds me of the *wild* roses I see around here growing along old, abandoned fence lines etc.... these are the kind of roses I like.
Nice banner Sue! Thumbs up
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.
