I really am not a huge fan of Summer time I am more of a fall and winter person. There are a few things that make summer bearable for me, flowers and the way the morning air smells and the birds. I adore birds and I love to feed them. One of my favorite birds to place food out for are the Hummingbirds. I have a pair that will be feeding at my hollyhocks early in the morning and if I forget they are out there they will come and hover in my face as if to tell me to stop bothering them while they are eating! They are such beautiful birds, so colorful and exciting to watch. I also put up hummingbird feeders so that they have extra in case the heat builds up and the flowers wilt.
If you have a garden but have not noticed any of these flying gems, maybe you should consider getting a few hummingbird feeders . They make wonderful gifts for gardeners in the family as well, and if you place one near a window you will have many hours of fun watching these acrobats preform their dance while feeding.You will be helping your garden as well as providing your self with the joy of seeing these beautiful birds because hummingbirds are also pollinators.
