I'll work on it, but I have a really big back yard that was sorely neglected, so it's tough going and we have lots of yellow jackets. Shoot, sounds like I'm just making excuses! I'll get on it!
Reply
:iconkayaksailor:
kayaksailor Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2011
I'm sorry, lol! I thoroughly understand about not wanting to work where the yellow jackets hang out!! We had them bad down in southern California - up here in northern California, not so many...but we've got tiny scorpions inside the house instead :sprint:

I'd try the feeders even without finishing the yard - except for my little deer-fenced plot our land is "natural" (rolling hills of grass with oak trees...) and the hummers find us :D

orinoor Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2011
I have a feeder, but I've never used it. I guess I always wanted to have the kind of yard that would naturally support wildlife, so they wouldn't be dependant on me. I have roses, sage and lavender which pretty much take care of themselves, and my husband planted sequoia's a few years back, so I just need to keep working it. Thanks for the inspiration your photos bring!

kayaksailor Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2011
We've got a "self sustaining" garden too - I don't have my mother's green thumb with annuals, lol! We also have the lavender and sage - which the hummers love so I'm sure a feeder would just be desert for them :love: Let me know if you have any questions...
