Humming Bird Feeder!

Standard

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.

Humming Bird Feeder

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.

Happy Spring!

About Nima

Hi, I am very delighted that you stopped by! Welcome to Creative ME!!! I 'm a wife to an amazing hubby, an Asian(Indian) native, nomad for a while and finally settled @ The Grand Canyon State in 2012. Our first 2 months of accommodation was in a hotel and that's when everything started. You must be wondering HOW? I was introduced to HGTV and started reading craft blogs. Ohh yes, PINTERST toooo and that is my fav! Well, inspired from these places, I started to DIY on budget and decorate our home. Whenever I posted pics of my projects on Facebook, everyone loved and gave many positive comments. Some of them also said I should not look for a job, instead start a blog or sell some of my projects ;) They thought I was doing something very cool!! That was a great motivation and I decided to tickle my creative senses to tame the stress monster ;-) And then, one day here is my blog , where I share my ideas and projects with friends, family and all other aspiring DIY-er's :) And if you like my blog, please come back and also don't forget to tell your friends :) Lastly, if you have a fun and functional craft or project or even a simple recipe I want to hear….please let me know and I can feature, down the line we will make Creative ME to WE..;)
