The little things in life

Hummingbirds are such beautiful tiny birds.

I see them by the feeders we have out but sometimes in the flowers in the yard.

When they zip by you when you’re outside it’s a  quick buzz that happens so fast you can miss it.

Here is the recipe I use for hummingbird nectar.

1 – cup of sugar

4 – cups of water

Bring to a boil take off the fire let cool and then add to feeders. Change out the nectar every couple of weeks especially when it is hot.

There have been years I can not put out enough nectar but this year there seems to be more wasted than what is eaten. I contribute part of that to the hummingbird friendly plants that bloom we have in our yard.

Hummingbirds make you realize it is the little things in life that truly matter.
