Gardening for the Hummingbird Hotel

We love hummingbirds, or I do, that is!  I saw my first hummingbird this morning!  Before I tell you about which flowers to plant that attract your hummingbirds, let's talk about what foods I think about this time of year!

Hummingbird cupcakes! YUM


Now onto the Hummingbird haven....We can all agree that you can feed the hummingbirds with a feeder, but do you want this?






Feeders are wonderful choices for your patios and porches, especially if you don't have a yard.  If you do have a yard, why not plant some beautiful plants in your yard to attract them and feed them!

Here are some plants I have in my yard, but there are so many choices.
