We have hummingbirds!

posted in: Everything Else, Gardening | 2

Long story short last year we planted a nice garden with lots of hummer favorites, got some hummingbird feeders and bought the good pre-made food… end result… I changed a feeders every 2-3 days & nothing ate out of them!  WELL apparently one of them got left up over the winter & yesterday I heard a buzz by my ear & a hummer was eating out of it!  The must have been eating out of it for a few days because there was a decent amount gone so I hurried & took it in side.  I hope they don’t get sick, because I know it’s extremely important that it is fresh!!!!

Anyways I sanitized it, made some fresh food the way my grandma does (1 part white sugar to 4 parts distilled water or fresh boiled water) & once it finishes cooling off I’m gonna put it back out & hopefully they will keep coming back.  The flowers aren’t even blooming yet so it really caught me off guard, I just figured since none of the neighbors had feeders out maybe we just didn’t get many of them!  Now I need to find our other feeders!

    I think it is a liitle early for hummingbirds to arrive.Probably June is best for me. Nice to have them come early.

      This post was from last year, but we normally start seeing them around here in May.
