If you are like us and enjoy watching nature surround you then you may want to put up a hummingbird feeder. There are many shapes, sizes and kinds out there that range from $5 for the plastic type to $50+ for the handblown glass art piece types. Hummingbird feeders add a nice touch to a garden or backyard and are quite a delight to see when the hummingbirds come around and feast on the nectar. You can simply make a sugar water mixture and they will be visiting you throughout the year. Traditionally hummingbird feeders use red dye, however, since we are about health and keeping things natural we used a teaspoon of beet juice which works perfect, pomegranate juice also works well and will add additional nutrients for the birds to eat.
We just recently added these little planters to the deck and found it doubled our hummingbird visitors.
They seem to really enjoy bright colors and feed on the nectar and flowers below.
These planters are super affordable and can be installed yourself.
We picked up the metal base and coconut liner simply filled it with dirt and seeds and
now just watch them grow and attract cute little hummingbirds.
