Boring patio, demanding a bit of color. Enter hanging fuchsia baskets (thank you Costco – who knew?!). Two lovely repeatedly blooming “dancing ladies” fuchsias now adorn our patio, making it summertime beautiful. But even better, we are now regularly visited by hummingbirds. They come swooping down, in search of sweet nectar. Smaller than I remember, but just as wondrous. They are a feat of nature, with lightening fast wings and tiny poking beaks. Can’t decide what I enjoy more, the blooms or the birds…
