New iris and hummers make an appearance

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I finally saw my first ruby-throated humminbird on 4-15, actually 5 at one feeder, zipping and fighting among each other.  I knew they were around as my feeders were being used. My work schedule and their feeding schedules didn’t overlap for several weeks.

Don’t use the red dye poison.  Make up one part of sugar and four parts of hot to boiling water. Mix well, cool and put in your feeders.  Store extra in the refrig.  And be sure to change out your feeders with a clean on at least every four or five days.  Just think what sweet tea will taste like sitting out in the hot sun for a couple of weeks.  Yuck!!

My iris have started to bloom.  The dwarfs and intermediates were the first to bloom.
