Hummingbird season is here!

Hummingbirds are one of the smallest signs of summer--but what kinds of things can do you to attract them to your yard?

1. RED!

Hummingbirds are drawn to the color red, and will be drawn to yards with bright red flowers or decorations. 

2. Plant the right flowers.

The best flowers for hummingbirds are those with tubular blooms (they hold the most nectar).  Favorites include lilies, petunias, and honeysuckle.

3. Set up a feeder.

Any commercial hummingbird feeder will do, but glass feeders are easier to clean.  Feed one part sugar to three parts water and wait.

Follow these steps and your yard will soon become a hummingbird haven.
