Do any of you have hummingbird misters.... especially homemade ones??? Would love to have one in my garden and I'm looking for brands/homemade ideas...

Thank You!
I hate losing plants....I know they are "just plants" but when you nurse them along and baby them and get them to grow, bloom, and be pretty and they die....it's like losing a friend..... Crying

I did not know there were special misters for hummingbirds?
I have ordinary garden misters which I was going to use if we got a real hot spell.

I've never known of a specialized one either but I use one of those flat hoses with the tiny pin holes in it. When laid across the lawn in hot days and the hummers dip back and forth through it or they set on a stone within the mist and their red throats just light up.

That's a good idea Tom!!

I don't think there is a "special" mister... more like things folks have made themselves....

I will need to remember to place a hose or mister out for the hummingbirds.
Thanks for the reminder.
