Wow,it has been a long time since I have written. I've just been busy!!! Hubby an I have just returned from a buying trip to Chicago. Boy, it was hot there. We left the city about 6:30pm Sunday, and we saw a thermometer that read 103 degrees. We saw quite a few interesting things at the Merchandise Mart. Several were so interesting that we just had to order them.

We have had the usual July comments from customers about hummingbirds. The usual "I had hummingbirds feeding all the time, and now I don't see them at all. Where did they go?" Well, they didn't go anywhere. They are feeding from your flowers, and feeding on the insects that are a large portion of their diet. They are around at the feeders early morning, and late at night. It's hard to catch them eating from your feeder. In another few weeks, they will be hitting the feeders hard to bulk up for their migration. Then we will miss them!!
