Around Labor day most of the humming birds started to leave. Just before they left my Red Prince Weigela shrub started to bloom on the upper branches. It had been blooming in the lower branches but I hadn’t noticed that the Ruby-throated Hummingbirds were feeding on the flowers. Once the upper branches started blooming the hummingbirds were frequent visitors. In addition to the Weigela flowers they also like catnip. I hope catnip doesn’t have the same impact on hummingbirds as it does on cats.
