I don’t like winter at all. I can’t stand to be cold whatsoever. In my ideal world, at least in my opinion, the temperature should always remain between 70-80 degrees year round. Also, regardless of where you live, there would be hummingbirds around throughout the year, no matter the season. In southeast Texas there are no hummingbirds in the winter.
Can you tell how much I miss them? Well, I certainly do for so many reasons. Hummingbirds are such beautiful and fascinating creatures, when they are here the weather is normally sunny, and mostly because these birds remind me so much of my mom whom I miss so very much.
So dear readers please try and understand why I have written so many posts recently on how to attract hummingbirds. In doing so I am reminding myself that warmer weather and these amazing birds will soon be back with us. Yea! It is also my way of connecting with my mom during this holiday season.
Blow is a list of some vines that will attract hummingbirds. Please, consider planting any of the in your hard, because both you and the birds will be glad you did so.
Gold Flame Honeysuckle: This is an early bloomer, as it begins about the same time that the hummingbirds show up, and it will continue until after they leave. As an added bonus, it smells terrific.
Christmas is almost here mom and that makes me miss you even more then usual. It comforts me to care your memory with me and I believe that you are somehow aware of all that I am doing about hummingbirds. You are in Heaven now but your memory is also alive and well in my heart. Merry Christmas to one and all! Here’s to looking forward to warmer weather and the return of the hummingbirds…it can’t come too soon for me.
