Hummingbirds Are Coming To A Garden Near YOU! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

I thought I saw my first hummingbird a few days ago & wondered if I was seeing things? I always leave a feeder on the front porch, even through the winter – Just in case… That is on the advice of Mark Greene, aka: ‘The Birdman’. I went in immediately and made more nectar & hung another feeder outside. And sure enough, we have our first Hummers! WooHoo! 💥 I LOVE em’! Hummingbirds mean Spring is Back! 

I love my little buddies 😊 They make my day when they show back up in Spring! Time to get feeders out 😊

In case you don’t already know… Clean up & wash your feeders & make some Nectar for them. It’s simple to do & it’s the best feed you can get! No need to buy mixes. 

Hummingbird Nectar recipe

4 parts Water
1 part Granulated Sugar

Mix/stir together in a pot. You can use Hot tap water to dissolve the sugar in the mix. Let it cool and pour it in your feeders. Boom 💥 


“When the hummingbird sinks it’s face into the trumpet vine, and the funnels

Of the blossoms and the tongue leaps out and throbs,

I am scorched to realize once again how many small, available things are in the world

That aren’t pieces of gold or power —- that nobody owns

Or could buy even for a hillside of money —- that just float about the world,

Or drift over the fields, or into the gardens, and into the tents of the vines, and how here I am

spending my time, as the saying goes, watching until the watching turns into feeling, so that I feel I am myself

A small bird with a terrible hunger, with a thin beak probing and dipping and a heart that races so fast

it is only a heart beat ahead of breaking—- and I am the hunger and assuagement, and also I am the leaves and the blossoms, and, like them, I am full of delight and shaking.”

~ Mary Oliver


It’s HUMMINGBIRD time in Tennessee! Enjoy!
