Hummy is back. Actually several hummingbirds are back. But the one (or ones) that know where I hang the plants and the hummingbird feeder are definitely here.
We had a hummingbird sighting a few weeks ago — saw one flitting around in the yard. Then, the other day as I was sitting near the sliding door, the hummingbird flew up to the plant hangar right by the door. He hovered near the empty hangar for a long time, and if I was reading his body language correctly, he was asking where the heck the plant was. Spring gardening being way behind schedule here, I hadn’t planted the hanging pots. So, off to the nursery I went on Saturday and had Hummy’s favorite, “sophie cascade” ivy geraniums, planted before night fall.
Then Monday, I purchased some instant nectar, mixed it up, and filled the feeder. I was busy yesterday so didn’t look, but today two hummingbirds have been happily feeding at the feeder. They are so pretty and I am so thrilled to have them back.
Here are the photos:
