Hummingbirds

What says “spring has sprung” better than the fragrant aroma of blossoming flowers and the brilliant bursts of flitting hummingbirds? May happens to be the best month to see these fast flyers, as it directly follows their fresh migration northward from Central America. To ensure that they will pay your garden a visit this year, you can make your own hummingbird feeders by combining one part sugar to four parts water. Heat until the sugar dissolves and let cool before filling your feeders. To further entice these favorite fowl while also infusing your garden with pops of color and vitality, try planting such beauties as fuchsias, trumpet vine, bleeding hearts, and foxgloves. These few easy additions will help make your little garden into an oasis of tranquility and place of vibrancy in no time.
