This Spring, Sara wanted to start her own garden. So, we gave her one of the raised beds, where she could do with it, what she likes to do. I helped her with sowing some coneflower, cosmos, hyacinth bean, morning glory, and sunflowers. Over the last several months, I posted photos of her flowers. Now in late Summer, the hyacinth beans finally started to bloom. The seeds themselves were actually from previous flowering in The Colony Community Garden and our home garden. Sara is excited. She is hoping, more hummingbirds come for a visit, before they migrate south to Central America. With a little bit of help from Mom and Dad, there might be a good chance, that one or two of the hummies still will visit Sara’s garden this season.
Here are a couple of photos of a hummingbird, which visited the hyacinth bean blossoms for some fresh and delicious nectar in our garden, a couple of years ago.
