We have quite the crew of hummingbirds this summer.
They have consumed 5 pounds of sugar in their homemade nectar.
This feeder has nectar in it still.
The hummers have been draining our four feeders rapidly because of our intense summer heat. Basically the plants, grass, and we ourselves are wilting.
1 Cup white sugar
4 Cups water
Boil for two minutes then cool completely.
It is important not to skip this step as it helps
prevent bacterial growth in a high sugar solution.
Keep unused solution in the refrigerator.
Our hummers will fly to South America soon.
They will return on April 1st next year.
In Olive Out news Joe is humming along too after his hip replacement.
He is walking without a cane and now driving.
I cannot say how much blogging I will be doing in the future.
I have gotten many things accomplished whilst disconnected
from the web BUT I have missed all of you terribly.
I made jewelry from vintage pieces of jewelry, thrifted here and there, painted two doors, cooked up a storm, cleaned a horrible storage room, played with a fat cat, played with my dog, sent CC off to school, and cared for my sweet man.
