The Hummingbirds Are Back
My favorite past time during the summer is to sit on my back deck with an ice cold drink in hand and watch the hummingbirds feed.
I love to listen to the sound of their wings, they just amaze!
Sugar Water Recipe
For years I purchased hummingbird nectar to share with my fair weather friends. Then, my husband’s grandfather shared this simple, sugar water recipe with me.
Now I can fill up my feeders anytime I’d like.
Note on Using Colorings in Hummingbird Feeder:
The coloring is not needed in this recipe.
I believe it just isn’t healthy for the birds and that is why I had to write that IF desired into the recipe. I dislike getting into fistfights on the net over it on forums, In the beginning, I’d fight about it; but each time a person came back with the dreaded words but companies use coloring. That fact alone it is something you just can’t argue with, nor can I come up with a proper come back for. Now, I have adapted you do you, and I’ll do me attitude on the subject of coloring.
Over the years I have lured hummingbirds and additional feathered friends into my backyard. Trying to get some excellent photography shots. You can read some of my posts here that I use more of my photography in.
You can purchase prints from the albums, if you fancy anything.
