We moved to our new house a couple of months ago. I was so sad to leave my hummingbirds. I didn't think we would have any in our new house since I am starting from scratch with the landscaping but to my surprise I have had as many as six here. One just stayed perched on the back porch for so long I gave him a name :) I really enjoy watching them chase each other in and out of the back porch.

I haven't really put my feeder up, but the hummers are loving the Turks cap that I planted just for them in the backyard. I saw a little sweetie sitting on my jasmine this morning. My neighbor has had 3 or four at a time in her feeder too. We are in the energy cooridor

I have not seen any hummers this year, hopefully they will come by to reenergize on their way south.  I wish we would get some rain.  My poor plants have been suffering so.

We have had hummers dive bombing are yard for the last several weeks.  Too many to count.  One flew into my sliding door and fell to the patio.  I turned him over and stroked his head and breast for about five minutes or so.  Poor little thing was so stunned and his beak was open.  Then all of a sudden he flew off and joined the chase around the backyard.  It was a nice feeling to see him flying around.  Love those little guys.

I just planted 3 pkg. 180 seeds of blue bonnets, hope at least half will grow. I'm excited

I live in league city area east texas. looks like very few people are interested in garden share.

I am looking for tradeing my pink angel trumpet for hens and chicks, very hard to find around here

Mary, thank you, and Charlie, I am glad you got it identified.
