Last night I was thinking about the hummingbirds and we’ve always had enough blooming that there were an abundance of hummingbirds. Even in Texas where we didn’t have a lot of blooming plants in the yard, there were wild flowers and fruit tree blossoms. Other than the one knockout roses, there are few blooming plants in our yard, though there are lots of flowers in the neighborhood and hummingbirds are all over a friend’s feeders almost next door.
Last night when we went to bed, I asked Vince to kinda be on the lookout for them and let me know when he sees one. He asked if I was worried they wouldn’t come. I wasn’t worried but was thinking that I should have bought one or two feeders til I knew they would come here. Vince said . . “They’ll be here by morning. They find those feeders quickly.”
Sure enough, there have been a couple out there. I haven’t been able to get a decent picture yet but here’s a picture from Texas.
I was mixing up 2 cups of sugar/8 cups of water every single morning and often running out of “food” before the day was over. Not sure we’ll have that many here but we can hope.
