Spring Arrives

Although we've had snow flurries at least once a week for the past month, and yesterday dawned cold and frosty, I heard my first hummingbird of the year!

This morning the feeders went up, and within 5 minutes they were being visited by my favorite garden dignitaries, the Hummingbirds!

In the front of the house, I have one feeder hanging from the eaves in front of the porch, mid-May this one will be replaced by a hanging basket of mixed flowers, that has to include purple petunias.

In the backyard, I have one feeder outside the kitchen window and one in front of my bedroom window. I cannot wait to get my window boxes planted. Hurry up warmer weather!
