Hummingbirds are on Their Way!

Hummingbirds are on their way back. It’s time to get ready for them. This is my 5th year photographing hummingbirds. Planning my hummingbird area is always a time for me to get creative. Not only do I have to think like a hummingbird but I also need to think like a photographer.

Gardening by Moonlight

Most gardeners enjoy the fruits of their labor in the day, watching the sun shine on their gorgeous plants. But why stop there?

Our Hardy Hibiscus Hybrids, a great story.
