I'm 58, married 31 years and have 2 daughters plus 2 older cats, and a 6 year old Chiclid fish (very big). This will be my 3rd summer of hummering (?) The first summer I used a Humzinger only and a few hummers visited my backyard for several weeks at a time. Last summer, I planted Cardinal Flowers and Salvia's and was rewarded with increased visits, including 2 juveniles in September that stayed for a week or so bulking up for their long journey.

I'm really excited about the coming summer. I have more varieties of plants on order and will put in a second feeder away from the first. I'm also putting in a flower bed for butterflies so I can't wait for warmer weather to get started. I enjoy reading everyone's comments on this Forum and have been lurking since I began hummering.
