Calling All Hummingbirds!

Nice day so far.  Time to start thinking about getting our balcony garden pruned and repotting some ferns.  We headed on over to the nursery for potting soil and coconut fiber hanging basket liners.

Then I saw the hanging basket of red Impatiens. So those went to the check out hut.  We walked around a bit and found a wonderful hummingbird feeder:

that looks something like this photo.  A red old-fashioned looking etched bottle.  In our area, we have Anna hummingbirds…

They live – all year – in the redwood and eucalyptus trees around our condo building.  Their chirping is so sweet!  Sometimes they linger at our feeder – oink!  So I think they’ll like the addition of a new one.  And so will we!  I know the basket of red Impatiens will attract them.

In about an hour, we’ll meet your daughter for supper.  She’ll fly back to Copenhagen this week-end.  Nice,small, quiet Mexican place.  I forget what part of Mexico the owners are from but…the food is like no other around here.

Think hummingbirds and spring!  Laterz…
