Frustration. No hummingbirds.
I'm getting so frustrated. I've lived in this house for about 4 years and have only had 3 or 4 hummingbird sightings. Every year I plant more and more plants that should appeal to them. I always kept my feeder clean and full. Now instead of just one feeder, I have five. If you saw my blog, I even resorted to taking my tablecloth off of my kitchen table and draping it from the clothesline....then I placed it on my lawn when I went to hang out some laundry. This year alone I planted some Jacob Kline monarda and Lucifer crocomia to draw their attention. I have a yard full of daylilies, coral honeysuckle (this is its first time with a good amount of blooms since it is still young), agastache, red impatiens, red-flowering heuchera, and salvias to name a few.
I guess I just need to vent, but what else can I do to get them to notice my yard? I'm not sure if you need any additional information, but I'm in Reading, PA. I am strictly an organic gardener...no pesticides, herbicides, etc. Any suggestions would be appreciated? I'm starting to feel really discouraged.
