Jackie is the plant expert in the family. I just photograph the results of her green thumb, maybe occasionally suggest a plant.
Well, this weekend we got something I have been whining for over four years to get.
A hummingbird feeder!
Today -- at my insistence -- we got a honeysuckle plant and small trellis for it to grow up.
Both of which are part of my long-range goal of putting in a small rock garden with plants that will attract hummingbirds and butterflies.
Within range of my big lens!
Why dont you think of a pool as well you'll attract the most beautiful dragonflies if you do.

We have several humming bird feeders and love to watch the humming birds feeding . They will fly from one end of the porch to the other , just missing your head , as for honeysuckle it smells great and grows wild thru shrubs and trees , I have just spent 2 days clearing honeysuckle from my ma in laws shrubs and trees .
We have a "well" (a structure that looks like an old well) into which I have set a wine barrel half and a pump that circulates the water through an old hand pump. Eventually I intend to set it up so that the water runs from the well to our fish pond about 10m away, sot of like a small version of the water feature in the photo competition thread.
With a 10 and 90 gallon tanks inside the house, we have no desire for a koi pound OUTSIDE.
Just something for my little Zen corner of the backyard.
That's all I ask.
