More Hummingbirds!

On this dreary day, I thought some more color would be appropriate and have shared some additional hummingbird photos from Ken Tapp and Santos McGill.  If you missed my blog post from a couple days ago featuring Marsha Mood’s hummingbird photos, be sure to check that out as well.  All of these shots were taking at the gardens.  The two photos above are from Ken with the last two from Santos.  Cool temperatures and cloudy skies were the order of the day with some intermittent drizzle.  That didn’t stop our grounds staff and dedicated volunteers from an active day out in the gardens.

Larry H., Cindy and Janice all had gardening duties, some watering, tidying and other tasks.  Larry also continued with his Holiday Light Show (HLS) preparations.  Cindy and Janice will be involved shortly with their own HLS tasks which are not insignificant.  As Mother Nature puts the garden to rest with colder temperatures, our pace of HLS set-up increases dramatically. The recent progress has been excellent though!  Bobby K. was in to continue work on our new electrical panel and is making some upgrades that will be very beneficial for the HLS. Terry N. popped by today and it’s always good to see him at the gardens.

 

Eva and Kay were out tidying in various areas today and always do a nice job of primping what still looks good for extended color and removing those annuals that are ready to be cleared.  Kristin did some tidying in the Japanese garden and Mary H. helped Eva this morning.  Bill O. did his mowing rounds and Marv B. primped both of his moss garden areas which are looking quite lush with all of the recent rains.  We also saw Joan F., Corky F., Mark S. and many others today.
