Hummingbird and Black and Blue Salvia

This is one of my favorite times during the summer months. The first brood juvenile hummingbirds are out of the nest and the hummingbirds at my feeders have increased more than three times.
I planted a hummingbird garden earlier in the summer looking forward to this occasion. It hasn't been easy to maintain. I've also had plenty of other wildlife--voles, chipmunks and moles! They've up-end plants and tunneled beneath them taking away the earth from the roots. As a result, many had to be transferred to containers! The hummingbirds don't care and there are plenty of blooms, so I guess that makes us all happy. 

Visit the Hummingbird Days of Summer at Vickie's Sketchbook to learn more about how we are celebrating hummingbirds in Tennessee.  Also visit Hummingbirds and Pollination to see the relationship between hummers and pollen in action!
