Okay, I'm Ready
It's August 1st. The day I expect the hummingbirds to bombard my feeders and cardinal flowers. Well, if not bombard at least show up.
They first come to visit me at the beginning of May and a couple of them will hang around here for the next week or ten days before leaving to spend their summer in Mentor, of all places. What does Mentor have that I don't?? Nothing!!!
So for the next couple of months I might see one a week or two if I'm really lucky. Some weeks I won't see any. The last time I saw one was on July 19th. Bummer Hummer
So, I'm waiting. The cardinal flowers are in bloom and the feeder is ready. So where are they??
As I am typing this one has appeared, right on schedule.
