Since this is my first year in caring for the hummingbirds, their departure to the South has hit me quite hard :(. I still feel blessed to see a few migratory females now and then but sharing my garden with them brought me great joy and gave me a new sense of purpose. In order to remedy my literal empty next syndrome, I’ve been dreaming up next season’s garden design with a dual purpose as both hummingbird haven by day and a moonlight garden by night. I have also lined up multiple art projects e.g. cross-stitch, paper crafts, and field journal, all hummingbird themed of course, to keep me busy while I look forward to their return and the great hope that I will have even more hummers next year :)!
