Preparing For The Arrival Of The Hummingbirds
They always arrive here on March 15th but since it has been such a warm winter I thought they may come a little early. I hate to see the first one arrive then I have to hurry to mix the nectar and wait for it to cool. So I have a jar already mixed and in the fridge. the feeders are in place where we can watch them from the recliner in the living room or while we eat at the kitchen table. It seems like I just cleaned the feeders and put them away. It is a chore since I have to change the fluid often because of the hot sun. If I placed them under trees we wouldn't be able to watch them that much. Under the eaves of the house gets lots of sun certain times of the day and the juice sours quickly. I always look forward to their coming but by the time they leave I'm ready to take a break.
