Hummingbirds and Baby Songbirds

My yard is half done and half not — much of the wild overgrowth cleared out, and healthy plantings given room to grow. This is the back yard hydrangea, much larger than the one in the front although to me a less interesting color. Archie likes it though. He cut two big blooms to take home as a present for Mommy.

My cedar fencing isn’t up yet, so I still look at trimmed but dense overgrowth in my neighbor’s yard, and at his wobbly decrepit fence. But there is an offsetting benefit: these bushy trees are filled with hummingbirds and baby songbirds. I think of them as a gift of early summer.

  1. All you n eed to do is go to the hardware store and buy a box of hydrangea fertilizer and it will turn to beautiful colors!
