The new girls of the garden

The newest family members

I have always been fascinated with hummingbirds. I’ve tried on many occasions to bring them to our yard, but clearly never had the right stuff.

This year, the vegetable garden was surrounded by nasturtiums. In early August we caught site of our first hummingbird. It was a day I danced for joy. We brought in a few more flowers and just recently added the feeders. It has been pure joy to watch them. When we are out having coffee by the garden, they seem to enjoy watching us as well.
