In the Garden

The hummingbirds are back, hurray. But I am not going to say I will get a photo of one! These guys are super fast and so much fun to watch. Right now they are enjoying the lupines and the flowers on the blueberry bushes. Soon the honeysuckle will be blooming and that is a big draw for the hummers. We have a colorful hummingbird feeder up for them, and they please us by taking a sip or two.

Every day is a new wonder in the garden! If all goes well, we should have a lot of planting done in the next few days. What grows in your garden?

We don´t have hummingbirds on this side of the ocean, not even anything that resembles them.

It´s to chilly for the plants here at the moment so now buds on the irises but small ones on the lupines :-)

Have a great day!

I can't wait for our hummingbirds to return ;o) I just bought two hanging fushia plants for them ;o) You know Robin, I have to admit, I don't know the name of everything in my garden. LOL! Ferns, hostas, orange cornflowers, lavender, oh, and my favorite Russian sage! The smell is amazing! I dry it with my lavender and bring it inside! I have to take some pics! Have a wonderful day!

Wonderful images! I love watching the progression of natural wonders through each season. We have had so much rain and little sun lately I feel it has stunted some of my flower blooms so I am hoping they will flourish over the next few weeks.
