I have a hummingbird feeder. Scratch that… two hummingbird feeders!

I’m always amazed to see the hummingbirds not only fly backwards, but actually sit and perch on the feeder! That’s when you can appreciate all of their color and beauty up close. So how do you bring these small winged angels to your garden and outdoor space? The answer is through a variety of plantings as well as feeders you can hang.
