Today’s GPOD is from Tina Wilson in Arlington, Washington. She says, “I have a large garden and plant a variety of flowers that naturally attract hummingbirds, bees, birds, dragonflies, and other garden critters. But I didn’t add certain plants just to attract them. Like they say in the movie Field of Dreams, “If you build it, they will come!” Hummingbirds zip around here all spring and summer long. It seems they like flowers that are tubular shaped. I enjoy the critters that visit my garden as much as I like gardening. If they hang around long enough for to me to grab my camera they get their picture taken!” Thanks, Tina, for sending in these great action shots!
