Wednesday Vignette March 14, 2018
An old photo from November 2015 is today's vignette. There is a huge number of photos to winnow down for tomorrow's Bloom Day post, so a quick look back at the past felt right. I don't hang out a feeder any more. The hummers must make do with flowers these days.
1. Even though I was fanatic about keeping the feeder fresh and clean, it's healthier for the birds to feed from flowers.
2. The number of hummingbird-feeding flowers in the garden year round has reached ridiculous levels. There is plenty for every bird who cares to visit.
3. One extra-feisty male would end up guarding the feeder and chasing every other bird off.
4. It is a whole lot easier to grow flowers for the birds than to prep sugar water, wash out the feeder, fill the feeder, and hang it out every day for the birds.
