Lenny is born in the year 1962, so for the 2 I picked 2 hummingbirds.
I found these Tufted Coquettes. Aren't they just cute?!
And perfect because of their orange accents.
I know they can be found in Suriname and in parts of South America.
Hummingbirds are considered to be symbols of peace, love and happiness, moreover, ancient pagans held them sacred for their tireless energy and anxiety. In Native American culture, a hummingbird symbolizes timeless joy and the Nectar of Life. It's a symbol for accomplishing that which seems impossible and will teach you how to find the miracle of joyful living from your own life circumstances. They are really spectacular birds, and have a lot to teach a person about self discovery and healing. It stands for immortality. Or sometimes the Sun. Hummingbird is seen by some as a messenger of love and joy. It symbolises energy, wonder and swift action. It is associated with the Ghost Spirit native American religion which teaches a dance that is intended to return the natural balance of the world. The hummingbird represent abundant life and joy.
I have posted this symbolic meaning before but here it is again. I just love it!
And since it is Cactus Monday I knew I had an oldie somewhere........
