Lately I have been posting here on the Shipslog and it is from three to ten hours before it actually is posted by Google. That is strange. I am assuming it is because of a poor cell signal.
Lately I bought some humming bird nectar and only one hummer tried it and it never came back to the feeder. I left it a few days and did not see another so I dumped it and mixed the sugar and water, 1 to 4 formula (I always add a drop or two of red color), and within hours hummers were coming by. I'm wondering why?
Where I am typing I can see the hummer feeder, I have one coming often, it is black with a white ring around it's neck. I only have three descriptions, and none fit that description.
I used to boil the sugar water but I read on the internet that it was not necessary so I quit. Now I just use hot water out of the faucet, is it a good idea? Can it harm the birds? (Yeah I am getting lazy in my old age).
I am liking the little tree frog in the 2" PVC pipe . I speak to it a few times a day. Yesterday there were two in the pipe. Later one was out in the sun. The frog looks so peaceful and Stella loves seeing it also. Why does the dude seem to stay in the same place all the time?
I am no gardener, I put my tomato plants beside the chain link fence, granddaughter Reece suggested it would be a great place to tie them erect using the fence. They get about 2 hrs of direct sunlight because of all the trees. Is that enough light? (Also I guess this is an ignorant time to ask, after I have planted them and one has a baby tomato.)
I also found a bag of Iris's(?) on my step. So following the instructions from Miss Mary, I planted about 25 Iris's. Now I must look up and see what an Iris is!
