Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

Tap, Tap, Tap

What was that tapping at my window?  How long before I was aware of the tap, tap, tap?  When I glanced to my left to see what bug was trying to come in, lo and behold not a bug at all, but a lovely ruby throated hummingbird.  I think he wanted me to know he was back for the summer.  I think, too he wanted to know where his feeder was.  Now I need to post on the hummingbird map that I have sighted one here in Windsor Mill, MD.

We are fortunate to have year-round residents...The Anna's Hummingbird. We have a feeder hung on our porch and often delighted by their presence. They also love our red flowers...the bottlebrush tree, the salvia plants, our butterfly bush. And when the feeder gets empty, they let us know it! Thanks for the website link...I have never visited it before. Enjoy your harbinger of Spring!

Gorgeous photo of your hummer, Marcia..... I was going to put out my feeders today and totally forgot about it...Maybe I'll remember tomorrow. I haven't seen any here yet---but maybe the nectar will draw them here!!!!

Have a great weekend.

I wish I could say that I'd taken that photo but you'll see the caption gives credit to someone else.
