Hummingbirds & Fuchsias

  • Posted on May 15, 2015 at 10:25 am

The new place is pretty keen. We don’t own it, but the people who do are really special. The house itself is special as well. It has a whole plethora of birds. We had a few birds at the other place, but here are many birds – domestic as well as wild – that I can hear throughout the day. A small bird house I brought from the other house had an occupant the day I hung it. It took him longer to find someone to share it with, but he was determined to claim it as his own.

Recently I saw some humming birds. So I have an idea. Rather than hang a humming bird feeder and train them to become dependent on the man-made nectar, I decided that I would plant/hang some fuchsias. This way they would come to something natural and when they were done blooming move on to something else. Perhaps I will figure out something different by then. We have wild fuchsias here as well as buying them. They are red and pink bushes. I think I will find some of those to plant as well.
