The Hummingbirds are out in force at Sweetwater this Summer!
This cute feeder seems to be just the thing to attract these tiny guys!
Mr. S and I are really enjoying the visits they make to the feeder!
Marvin gets soooo excited when he sees one….thinking he will be able to catch himself a treat…..NOT!
You can buy Hummingbird Nectar already made!
Yup….even half price….it is still $7.48!
In my mind…that is way too expensive!
It is a simple matter to make your own!
Make some Simple Syrup!
1 part water
1 part sugar
a few drops of red food coloring
Simply (I guess that is why it is call Simple Syrup) bring the sugar and water to a boil (stirring often)
Let it cool. Pour it into the feeder and add the food coloring.
The cost for this must be about 25 cents!
Lemon Tree Dwelling Simple Syrup Ideas
I can’t wait to try some of these out!
This recipe from Truvia looks interesting! I will be curious to see if it has the right consistency and flavor. If it does……it would be great not to add the calories!
Have A SWEET Day….
