You asked what kind of hummingbird feeder was in yesterday's blog post.
This feeder is called "Lil Sweety" and can be found online here.
It's a great hummingbird feeder in that you can actually mix your nectar right in the feeder.
There is a compartment for the sugar and one for the water.
Pour boiling water into the chamber and it mixes with the sugar.
Allow to cool, and it's ready to be hung. It is dishwasher safe as well.
Best time to wash and refill is after dark....then it is ready for the next morning.
Our hummingbirds seem to really like this feeder.
Yesterday's bird feeder visitor was this Rose-breasted Grosbeak.
You might notice there is another Indigo Bunting on the feeder as well.
Apparently the Indigo Bunting gets grey tips on its feathers after it molts...
and these grey tips wear off, leaving the bird brilliant blue.
Yesterday was the perfect day for gardening.
I spent the entire day planting, watering and playing in the garden.
Early in the morning, I picked our first batch of asparagus...
you might notice that stump in the corner of the garden.
After a few hours of work in that area, it was transformed into this...
It remains a work in progress, and I will share photos when it is complete.
While I was working, Mr. Toad dropped by for a quick chat.
I think he was interested in having tea... and I assured him that a tea party would be
happening very soon... but not just yet.
When the garden work was complete,
I stopped for a visit with the sheep.
Sitting there looking at Faith, I couldn't help but notice that she has turned into her mother.
Our little black lamb has turned into the spitting image of her mama, Gracie....
grey, now, with a black face.
