They're Baaaaaaaaaaaaaak!

Bonjour from Campagne Maison

I cleaned and filled the hummingbird feeders this past weekend and it wasn’t a moment too soon. I am in the process of painting the front porch and yesterday I was “supervised” on several occasions by this little darling.

I never knew that hummingbirds would perch and drink. For some reason, I always thought they drank in mid-air. This picture does not do justice to the little fellow. He is really colorful.

Because the feeders were so successful last year and the “food war” got pretty bad, I am going to add more this year. If you are interested, I found this great recipe for making hummingbird food:


It seems to be a hit with all the hummingbirds around the farm.

Please leave a comment if you stopped by the farmhouse today. We love having company.

Au revoir,
