First hummingbird of 2012!
Just a garden note that I spied the first hummingbird of the 2012 season yesterday. I was out pulling weeds when I heard the buzzing of a hummer. Turning quickly around, I saw a hummer working over the firecracker fern hanging in a pot on the porch. He saw me and flew off all post-hasty like. I didn't get a super close look, but I think it was a ruby-throat. I figured they would show up any day since the salvia have begun to bloom all around the garden. I'll try and snap a photo this week of him, but I dropped my good camera a couple weeks ago and broke it all to bits. *sadface* I'm on an old back-up camera for now and it's a bit slow.
