Hummingbirds teach us to transcend time, to recognize that what has happened in the past and what might happen in the future is not nearly as important as what we are experiencing now. It teaches us to hover in the moment, to appreciate its sweetness." - Constance Barrett Sohodski
Lately, I've been dreaming of the return of hummingbirds. Even though they won't arrive in my area until the first week of May, I am excited to know they have started their journey north.
According to the Ruby Throated Hummingbird migration map, they have made their way into the southern end of Georgia and are working their way north.
These miniature birds follow the path of blooming flowers up the coastline until they reach their summer home. Planting flowers and offering nectar feeders when they arrive practically guarantees they will stay nearby all summer long.
I've added a Hummingbird page with lots of photos and a few links to resources for attracting hummingbirds that I hope you will find helpful.
Until next time . . . HAPPY GARDENING!
