Happy Friday. Boy, 4 day work weeks are the toughest, don’t you think? I’m so glad the weekend is near. I’ve been working in the yard a lot, mainly weeding and clean up and some pots.
One of my most favorite things to do in the summertime on the weekend is too wake up early, take my coffee outside and in the quiet of the morning, just listen to the birds. We decided to move the bird feeders away from the side fence and out towards the golf course. The seed tends to attract rats sometimes and as long as there away from the house I’m okay. Rats need to eat to.
Here’s a great tip. Microwave your birdseed for a minute and it will sop the germination. That way, when the birds push seed on the ground weeds won’t grow.
I don’t want to forget my Hummingbirds. I’ve named them, Downtown Freddy Brown and Rudy. Our two feeders sit right outside our family room windows. These two have been around for the last 4 years and they stay all year around. If you want the best secret recipe for Hummer Nectar, see my previously post here.
Enjoy the weekend!
