Today on Windowpane Wednesday, I’m sharing photos from a few weeks ago of our sweet hummingbirds.
On day, I noticed a hummingbird visiting these pink flowers I planted just outside our bedroom window last year. My friend tells me the plant is “Society Garlic”. I like them because the foliage is green year-round, they have pretty pink blooms from spring til fall, AND the deer completely ignore them! It’s a bonus that hummingbirds are drawn to them.
I decided to place a hummingbird feeder nearby.
Within an hour, we had a visitor.
I thought it was nice to capture a few pictures with the pink flowers in the background.
I know these tiny birds will begin their long journey soon. Although I still have the feeders up and filled, I always wonder with each sighting if it will be the final one of this season.
Safe travels, sweet little ones.

They are such adorable little birds…..we still see our visiting hummer – yesterday he stopped by in fact. I’m sure now the weather is getting cooler we will have to say farewell for another year very soon though!
Your beautiful brave tiny hummingbirds are a true wonder. We don’t see them in Britain, but do sometimes see hummingbird hawk moths, which are obviously a moth (and more of a novelty than a beauty) thanks for the lovely pictures
I do enjoy watching hummingbirds. So tiny and so graceful. Soon they’ll all be gone for another season though.
they know a safe place to get a good meal before their travels …
How pretty – flowers and hummingbirds. We enjoy the hummingbirds, but I fear ours have already begun their migration. I haven’t seen any in a week.
The hummingbirds are such special and sweet birds How great would it be if we had them all year long.
