The Hummingbirds are back!

Yesterday the lady hummingbird was checking out the red on our outdoor thermometer letting us know she was back. They do that every year, as we seem to never have the nectar feeder hung, before they arrive. So far it is only the female. The male has not been seen yet.

We are packing the truck today for Saturday's market. It will be stuffed with all types of plant material. Perennials, tomatoes, peppers, zucchini, squash, pumpkins, sweet peas, verbena, gomphrena, snapdragons, castor beans, foxgloves, cardoon, succulents, 5 dahlia varieties, all of which are grown for the cut flower industry, and the hypertufa containers. This year we made a large container suitable for tomato plants or flower/foliage groupings. The dimensions are approximately 15" tall by 17" across.

We also have a good selection of succulents, some of which are potted into decorative containers, hypertufa containers or they are available in a 3" plastic pot.
