I make 3 qts at a time needless to say most of it gets tossed
when changing/cleaning the feeders. I looked out just before
taking my grandson to the bus at 7:20AM and sure enough there
was my bossy hummer fluttering around the saucer feeder! It
seems so cold, I think its 50 degrees. And just to think the last 2 nights was 38 degrees and they (2) are still here!!
My friend said there was frost those 2 cold nights. Now its headed toward 80 degrees for this week.. so maby they will be here a while yet :) Commin'up another pitcher of nectar :) :)
