Fall

Here it is almost the end of September and the weather is still gorgeous. It's supposed to turn cooler next week but it's wonderful now.

The resident hummingbirds and swallows have left. We are seeing migrating hummers now and enjoying them before it gets too cold here for them. At the suggestion of someone in a magazine, we have changed the ratio of the sugar water recipe to 4 parts water and 2 parts sugar for an extra energy boost. Usually the ratio is 4 parts water and one part sugar. The hummers have to fly a long way to get to their winter home in Mexico and South America.
