I have not seen a hummingbird in about 2 weeks. I was tempted to take them down. Now I'm torn. On the one hand, I hate to remive a honeybee food source. On the other hand, I have plenty of stuff in bloom on which they are also foraging. I would prefer that they forage on actual flowers right now as probably the beekeepers keepibg them would also prefer. Thoughts?
Always looking for interesting plants for pollinators and food! Bonus points for highly scented plants.
