With all the NEW and improved information on how to attract humming birds that is out there I am taking a new path this year. I have made a delicious mixture of sugar and water….boiled and cooled it and did NOT add red food coloring like I have done many, many times in the past. Experts say that the food coloring can harm the little fellas. I was not aware of that. To further complicate this issue while shopping at the garden center section today…what did I spy? A number of powered mixes that all have dyes in them. To out fox any super sensitive humming bird that may stop over for a drink, I have added a big flower pot that contains the Lantana flower. The experts also say that humming birds fly right to that flower. I will keep you posted!
