It's hard to believe that after the long, snowy winter we've had here in Maine that it can actually be time to hang the hummingbird feeders and get ready for summer.
I'll be honest with you, I felt a little silly hanging my hummingbird feeders yesterday. There is, after all, patches of snow along the roadsides here. But then, it is May and the hummingbirds traditionally wing their way to my little corner of Maine in the first week of May.
I checked the hummingbird migration map this morning and sure enough, hummingbirds have already been sighted in Maine. Some arrived in mid-April along the southern coast of Maine - but there is one reported sighting for today that is further inland and a bit further north.
I don't know when the hummingbirds will make their way to my yard, but I'm ready for them and I'm sure they will appreciate a sweet treat when they arrive.

Until Next Time . . . HAPPY GARDENING!
