Back to the woods with Willy
on my needles

They're coming!

Or here!

Two weeks ago it was warm, the flowering tree buds were swelling and bugs were flying around. Then the temps fell and we got 11" of snow. That melted, temps stayed down. Any little hummers that arrived early must be finding it difficult. After seeing the map, I'm putting my feeders out. Just in case. it looks like they're a week or so ahead of last year

In case you've forgotten, the recipe is 1 part sugar to 4 parts water. I make mine in a pint glass measuring cup by measuring 1/2 c of sugar, then filling the cup to the 16 oz line. Not accurate but easy and close enough.

Always Mother's Day here. But I will get the feeders ready in case they are early.

Thanks! I did not think it would be so soon with the Big Chill going on.
