Spring is here….
I am absolutely loving Arizona’s spring weather, trying to spend as much time outside biking, walk in our neighborhood and very soon we are going to have a brand new backyard designed by S. We are super excited and can’t wait to see how beautiful it is going to be ❤
Well, my most favorite part of spring is the flight of humming birds. It amazes me the way they fly up, down, forward, backward and sideways. They move their wings more like a buzzing insect and you can feel them.
Here are some pictures from our backyard 🙂
They visit 4-5 times a day – one piercing on the flowering pear tree, other on the feeder and 2 little ones chasing each other.
Hummingbirds get the energy they need to maintain their astonishing metabolism primarily from flower nectar and the sugar water they find at feeders and here is the recipe if you want to attract some into your yard.
Sugar – 1/4 cup (Only White)
Water -1 cup tap/natural
The ratio of sugar to water is – 1 portion of sugar +4 portions of water
Take 1 cup of water and add 1/4 cup of sugar and dissolve. Fill the feeder and hang it in on a tree or next to flower pots.
And enjoy the birds visiting your garden.
