First and Last

Last of the Coneflowers

First Moonflower. Thank you Linda!


First Heavenly Blue, first thing this morning

Last Ruby-throated Hummingbird? Ours have been gone for a while,
so this one and her partner are probably passing migrants
I put the feeder back out, just in case the cannas run out of nectar
Of the season.

They were tremendously hungry and mostly ignored me

YAY! That is one GIANT Moonflower! I am so glad that it bloomed for you!
I have not seen any hummers for a few days, but after reading this I decided to keep my feeder up .... maybe there will be a straggler or two.

I remember seeing a big patch of Cardinal Flower along the Hudson that seemed to be humming with bees. But it turned out to be a couple dozen Hummingbirds all fueling up for migration and for once, not feuding with each other at the feeders, the way they did all summer. I guess they get along better when they migrate. Beautiful Morning Glory! I stopped planting them because I wouldn't get any blooms until nearly fall, when the days were so short the flowers wouldn't open until afternoon. Lovely photos!

Linda, thanks again. I saw another hummer this morning, zooming through the cold, grey fog.

Jacqueline, Wow, what a sight to see so many hummers. The most I have seen at once was four or five at a friend's house. Awesome!
