The new planter I created. It features marigolds, red superbells, red salvia, and a zonal geranium. Now hummers will come onto the porch :)

that is very nice!! I wish you would use plain sugar water, much better for the hummers. 4 cups boiling water to 1 cup of sugar. Let it cool and feed :)


RE: My new Hummer pot!

great job Eric! You're going to see hummers right on your porch this year I'm sure.

OT, I've been trying to find the post you made a month or two ago about setting up a box for birds to take nesting materials. I can't recall if it was in the hummer or bird watching forum. Wanted to add a note that I put up a suet cage with scraps of fabric, pillow stuffing, dog fur, string, etc. I was sure it would be emptied right away, but have had very little taken by the birds, and I put it in a tree near where they all hang out. Then we groomed the dogs outside & all the fur tufts in the grass are gone! I give up lol.

Sorry about the red stuff :) It's the last bit leftover from last year. Silly me! My birds have discovered the nesting cage, but they must be waiting for warmer weather to build nests. It's just getting warm here in PA.
