Hi! Edward Welcome! Sometimes don't you wish you could tell them private property? This year I thought I dodged grasshoppers for the first time! The nymphs are now here. I had some nesting wrens! Ate bugs galore! When the babies left the nest, they left, too. Sad One year I thought I was being garden smart by planting poisonous plants like foxgloves. Those grasshoppers said salad bar and ate them down! Come to find out they love plants like that because it makes them taste bad to birds! May you find many blessings throughout your life!

Monika-- It is fantastic that you have hummingbirds! I am glad you were able to take that picture! It made me think I have not seen a hummingbird in awhile. Probably means I am not doing enough yard work or maybe hummingbirds do not like it when temperatures are in the 100's here. Hopefully your dog will get used to them. I know your dog is not a visitor, but you should post a picture. May the blessings in your life multiply!

Hello! I was surprised that I had hummingbirds in my backyard! Early July, I was picking cucumbers from my garden when I heard a loud noise and saw this little bird fly by. To my surprise it was a hummingbird! The hummingbird likes the nectar from the yellow flowers that bloom before the cucumber grows.

The following day I bought a hummingbird feeder and food for my little visitor! I've had the feeder out for almost 6 weeks and I was happy to see the two hummingbirds. I hope more visit before they have to head home.

I've seen videos on YouTube that people post. They make hummingbirds a water/sugar mix for food. I might try that after this liquid is done.

And as for my curious dog....here's Diesal...

He looks like best friend material! Thumbs up But I kinda could see him saying Oh mom, you know I am a cutie! Gardens and dogs it does not get much better! I live with my daughter and I am Grams to her three little cuties and her gardener. I will look for some photos of them to share!
May God protect all people and pets from harm!

Except for the blue/tan chihuahua all the others were rescue/shelter dogs! May your homes be filled with love and your gardens full of delight!
