There are certain times in my garden cycle that I always see hummingbirds seek out a feast of nectar.
In the spring when the honeysuckle vine is in bloom and near the fall when the obedience plant is in bloom.
I love it when they are regularly in my yard!
Today when I looked out the window I saw 2 hummingbirds in a dance. They were either trying to scare one another off or doing a love dance. They would fly in sync through the yard and then find some nectar to drink.
Here are a few pictures!
The obedience plant is in purple. I've pointed out the hummingbird with a white arrow.
There are two birds, one with a red tail and the other all gray.
Here is the gray one.
The red one .... and on the far right hand side is a flash of the gray one.
The gray one decided to find other nectar and came to the patio hanging baskets. This poor fuchsia basket has been having a hard time in 100 degree weather, but it's still hanging on.
Now the red tailed hummingbird found a beautiful Zinnia to feast on.
This time of year when everything is big and blooming - it gives me such joy.
I do love my garden and all the creatures who enjoy to feast on nectar here.
Please come again!
