Today I'm thinking out loud about the new addition to our backyard. If you read my Weekending post on Monday (HERE), you got a preview of the hummingbird feeder that Ian and Kayla gave me for Mother's Day. I absolutely LOVE it!! The beautiful handblown glass look is so pretty. This is a gift I know I'll treasure for years to come.
Do you have a hummingbird feeder? What's working for you to attract the little guys?
After a little research, here's what I found out about positioning the feeder to attract the most hummers:
- They should be hung out of direct sunlight. (Epic fail on my part - mine is hanging in a spot that offer no shade at all.)
- Hang them away from windy areas. (I did okay on this one.)
- Place the feeder in and around trumpeting flowers. (Again, okay in that department - but not great.)
Looks like I need to figure out where I need to relocate my feeder before I can expect to see any hummingbirds visiting my diner.Now the fun part -- link up to Thinking Out Loud Thursday with me and Vanessa at X-tremely Vanessa .
