Ready for the Hummingbirds

Not really needing another feeder, I kept procrastinating but eyed this feeder everytime I walked by it in the bird food section. Something about the old time look of the bottle appealed to me. I liked the idea that it is glass and red. Never really cared much about the adding of red dye to sugar water or the concentrate mixture.

Down to one today so I made the purchase. I usually see the first of the hummers around tax day which is not so far away. At least something to be happy about as I rant and rave about high taxes while writing the check for my payment due.
I was hoping for an early arrival but with a cool snap arriving for the next several days, I will just have to wait.

Nice. Your dogwood blooms and bluebird pic is really something!

Thanks Woodduck. I thought it was time for a change to a spring inspired header.

We one the same wavelength, I just bought some outdoor lights to hang in my trees that look very similar. No hummingbirds here in England alas :-D

What a shame that you don't have hummingbirds. They are so delightful to watch. Your lights sound very neat. I look forward to a picture. I think the old timey look screams charm.
