The Hummingbirds are Here

Grandma and Grandpa H. have always had many hummingbird feeders and therefore a lot of hummingbirds. Last year, Amy took much interest in them and so Grandpa gave her the traditional hummingbird feeder. We had a few sightings last year, but not many.
This year I bought a fuchsia plant in hopes of attracting more. It seems to have worked.
We have ruby-throated hummingbirds buzzing all over the place.
