Banding Hummingbirds in my garden

We had the hummingbird guy come and band hummingbirds in my garden yesterday! very cool to be a part of. The first photo is the smallest bird in North America-calliope hummingbird. The second is a Black-Chinned. The last photo is how we catch them-they fly into cage and then he pulls the string and catches them. He handled them for just a few minutes, weighing them, measuring beak, wings and tail.

Got all of the beds done and planted. I put in new raspberries and will pull the old ones out at the end of the season, and get rid of weeds and add new soil. We are having a beautiful spring with lots of rain and nice warm temps-hoping to find a old wooden picnic table for gravel area.

Fence up

This weekend the fence went up for Phase 2. Our neighbors came and put it up in a day and half. I hung my rusted tool garden gate. That only sat in yard for 8 months!. We took down the center part and am able to have the whole thing enclosed. Next early spring we will take down old part and make it go with the new part but couldn't this year because I had already planted and didn't want deer in there.

Jeff says wednesday for door-sat a prayer for me that it goes up!

planted a flowering crab, 3 honeysuckle to go up fence and climbing roses.
