When I did my shopping last week, I bought a hummingbird feeder. I filled it and hung it outside. The next day when we came home from work, I noticed that the feeder was empty. I didn't suspect that we had had a swarm of hummingbirds around the feeder all day long! The feeder had dripped nectar all over my front porch! Today I took it back to the store, and guess what? The lady in line next to me was returning the exact feeder as I, and she had the same problem too! Today I bought a different feeder, we'll see how this one fares!
I have Monday off from work, and I plan on doing a LOT of yard work! I hope the weather is nice for me! I can't wait to get all my plants in the ground. I also bought some seeds for my garden: carrots, scallions, spinach, green beans, snap peas, and radishes. I want to have a greater variety of produce than last year. Off and on we see a rabbit in our back yard, so I hope that these doesn't attract him!
We saw a goldfinch in our front yard, perched and singing away. Oh, I just love goldfinches! While I was shopping this week, I saw a goldfinch feeder that is made for goldfinches only: the perches are such that they have to feed upside down. I want to get this and see if it really will be for goldfinches only!
Thanks for reading, and have a happy Saturday!
