I just had to show everyone one of the hummingbirds that have been enjoying my garden. This one is right outside my window by the computer. I have a butterfly bush (buddlia) outside and it seems to really enjoy it. I think this is a female (the male has a red throat). This weekend she was drinking from every tiny flower on the buddlia and then she actually sat down and rested for a while before continuing! I sat at my desk and snapped these pictures, I've never seen one spend so much time at one plant. I absolutely adore these little birds! I have planted as many flowers as possible that I think might appeal to them and I have seen them so much this summer it must be working! They seem to enjoy hollyhocks, lavender, petunias, and everything else around here. I even have a nectar feeder on the pergola by the back door for them. Aren't they just adorable!?
