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 (

Fred snacks at Cherry Queen

Fred snacks at Cherry Queen, a cultivar of Autumn Sage, Salvia greggii. As most of you know better than I, a one-day extreme cold snap this winter brought temperatures to zero, and has killed many of my salvias (though quite a few salvia "black and blue" have survived). So I'm busy replanting them. This Cherry Queen was only planted this morning but already Fred has discovered it, as you can see in the above video. Note that he doesn't bother with the columbine blooms.
