Ode to a Hummingbird

Hummingbirds are an important part of my garden, and I attract as many as I can. I’ve never understood putting out sugar water for hummingbirds. Surely, refined sugar can’t be good for them.

What I do instead is plant tubular flowers (any flower they can dip their beak into), which gives the birds natural nectar. They much prefer nectar over sugar, and it has to be so much healthier. I also have a lovely fountain near my kitchen window which attracts the hummingbirds and other small birds.

Here’s an affirmation for you: I stop and smell the flowers today. I take a beauty break and enjoy nature in all her glory.
