Ever since Sug had a deck added to the Cottage I thought it would be a wonderful vantage from which to watch hummingbirds.
First we have to attract them. I have seen hummingbirds in the yard in past years but I was not focused on keeping them there.
I have read that hummingbirds are attracted to the color red so we bought a variety of both red-leafed and red-flowered plants to attract them.
Hummingbirds especially enjoy flowers with a trumpet-like shape where they can insert their long beaks.
We’ll plant them at the corners of the new deck.
I have no red in the yard so the Cottage will have the corner on hummingbirds.
Do you have hummingbird experience?
