The hummers are still here! I thought they would have headed south by now but there was one at my feeder this afternoon. Then she buzzed over to the deck to have a sweet sip from my mandevilla. See her? No? I guess she buzzed away before you could see her. She is SO fast... Seriously, I have tried and tried to get a photo of this little speed demon with no luck this year. I see her almost daily but she seems to be camera shy.
The days are cooling and growing shorter, but my mandevilla is flourishing. It has more buds and blooms now than it has had all summer.. go figure! I am now bringing it into the garage on cool nights to see how long I can keep it going, but I doubt that all the buds on it now will ever become full blooms, unless we have a real warm spell (for more than a few days) hint hint
Do you still have hummingbirds in your area?
Peace on earth, today, Sept. 11...
