Now those who know me know that I'm not much of an outdoorsy type person. Nor do I like "uninvited" guests on my deck or in my yard....more specifically, things like bugs, spiders, bees or possums, etc. Note: I DO, however, realize that some of the aforementioned visitors are just part of life, so to speak...they are GONNA be around. And believe it or not, I'm ok with that...as long as I am inside and they are OUTside :-).
But today, we had some outside guests come and visit and we actually invited them. Jayla has been worrying me to death about getting a hummingbird feeder. We've had one for quite some time, but I never put it out. When it was given to us, it also included a box of the nector mix. But to make a long story short...our sweet little doggie, Trae, got into that box one day. He was less than 6 months old when he stumbled upon this sweet delicacy. And needless to say, his little snout was bright red and he was bouncing off the walls!!! I guess sugar has the same affect on dogs as it does kids.
ANYWAY...back to the topic at hand. Jayla asked for a feeder about a week ago while we were out shopping. Fortunately, I didn't buy one because I remembered that I still may have one laying around. I found it and in turn, found a recipe for the nector. I bought a little hook for it and put it out on our deck about 2 days ago. And today, we had some little visitors. They are amazing. Take a look....
Aren't they cute? Jayla was SO excited! She kept asking me what time they'd be back, cuz they had bunches of water to drink before darktime :-). I told her that he was going to tell his friends about what he'd found and that he'd be back later.
