The Hummingbirds are BACK!!!

You have to look closely, see him on the left? The move so quickly. There were three of them darting around the yard. The distinctive little chirp. Oh what a happy sound....I love to watch them, they stayed all day until after dinner time.

Diving in for some sweetness....I boil 4 cups of water with 1 part refined sugar until dissolved and change the sugar water every 3-4 days. No need for the red coloring.

They usually come back around May was the second the first day I saw them. I love watching them. The sweet little birds seem to leave around Sept 15th. They are one of my simple pleasures.
