BASICS: "Hummingbirds.....where is the person, I ask, who, on observing this glittering fragment of the rainbow, would not pause, admire, and turn his mind with reverence..." (J. J. Audubon).
This is a blog about my summer life at the Baiting Hollow Hummingbird Sanctuary, at my winter garden, Calypso, in the Bahamas, and aspects of life in general.
This private sanctuary is now permanently closed to the general public, as a result of a lawsuit brought by a neighbor. Only my friends and personal guests may visit (

Opening Day quiet! - but good hummer activity

Our opening day today was very quiet, with only 1 visitor, the excellent photographer and old friend Michael Chachkes. He saw quite a bit of activity on the front deck, and here are some of the results. Thanks Mike!
It was a perfect day, warm but fairly dry, with a wonderful westerly breeze.

rosebud sage (S. involucrata "Bethelii") - a hummer magnet.

All visits are by private invitation only - for details, see the righthand column of this blog.

bog sage (Salvia uliginosa)

shrimp plant (Justicia brandegeeana)

More to follow......
