Most of "my hummers" :) left this week.
Usually our last migrating guests are seen between the dates of Sept 28th to October 3rd. So their "clock work like" schedules continues.
One of "My Girls" buzzed me at 7:03 AM and proceeded to the salvia and clematis ragouchi.
Two small migrators are also enjoying feeders and the floral banquets: nasturtiums,obedient plants, impatients, salvias, lantanas, dicentria luxuriant bleeding hearts, blue Lobelia, cardinal flowers, phlox, zinnias and coral bells,purple hyssop, dotted mints, butterfly bushes and Rose Mallow.
Fall provides an excellent opportunity to establish more "hummingbird bait" for our guests in 2023. Butterfly weed plants have been ordered and will arrive in October.
Seeds that are forming here will be used to sow additional dotted mint, purple hyssop, blue Lobelia, cardinal flowers, phlox, and Rose Mallow.
Safe journeys and God's blessings to our smallest bird friends in the forest. We'll miss you, and look forward to your return, May 8th 2023.
