Well, this isn't the best photo I've ever taken! But there was a screen between myself and this lovely little jewel of a bird.
And, they are soooo fast that it's really difficult to take their picture!
I wanted to post about which flowers are in my garden that I've seen these little birds go ga-ga over, so here is a list that you can incorporate into your garden, if you like! I do of course have a feeder, too, and only use a sugar/water mix. (Never use food colouring. It's not required and could be harmful!)
- Bee Balm (Monarda)
- Morning Glory (Ipomoea)
- Butterfly Bush
- Sweet William (Dianthus barbatus)
- Lobelia (blue)
- pink Coral Bells (Heuchera)
- Scarlet runner beans
- Hosta (elegans, "Frances Williams"
- Crocosmia 'Lucifer'
- Red-hot poker (Tritoma)
- Linaria purpurea
- Hollyhock (Alcea rosea)
Many of these garden flower varieties, (and more!) are available in Wall Flower Studio's Local Harvest store! (click to visit).
Thanks for viewing, and, Happy Gardening!
