I don't do hummingbird feeders. They need to be filled daily and washed weekly. I barely get my dishes done daily.
But Hubby and I do love hummingbirds so we plant flowers that will attract them.
I was deadheading in the perennial garden this evening watching the hummingbirds swoop around the Cleomes. I tried to photograph them, but they looked like this:
So a little while later I was very happy to see the tiny birds take a break on the tomato cage holding my Ugly Tomatoes.
The juvenile hummingbirds of both sexes look like a female. So my visitors may have just been curious youngsters out for an evening fly. I love the squeaky little chirp they make while flitting around.
These amazing little birds spend their winters in Mexico and the Caribbean. What an long journey for such a small bird!
I will always plant flowers for the hummingbirds.
