Gerard captured this awesome photo of a Ruby-Throated Hummingbird sipping happily at one or our bright red petunias. Red is their favorite color, but they will sip at other favorite plants even if they aren't red. Actually getting a decent photo of an elusive but stunning hummingbird is extremely difficult as anyone who's ever tried knows! Making any picture that is clear and in a attractive position very precious.
Passion Flower: This is our first passion flower vine. We had seen one growing wild in a ditch out here in Georgia and so when I saw it on the Jackson & Perkins cataloge I ordered one. They are indigenous to South America. So that means they grow really easy out here! And they smell really, really great!
