Next Phase of Hummer Happiness

This week saw another milestone in the Ruby Throated Hummingbird year: the arrival of the first Trumpet Vine flowers!  These are not only beloved by the hummers as a natural nectar source, but they're spectacular flowers.  And we have plenty of them on the property!  There are two mature loblollies encrusted with the vine and new shoots come up everywhere.  Hence the hummers have what must be a heavenly banquet of nectar.  The flowers should be out for many weeks and take us into deep summer.  It will be amazing!
