Garden Photo of the Day

READER PHOTOS! Time to leave the nest, kiddies…

Remember when I posted Pam Wittenberg’s photos of the hummingbird nest she’d found and some shots of the babies, begging for food from their mother? Click here to refresh your memory. That was just a couple of weeks ago, and now Pam’s sent us photos of the almost-adults, just about to bust out of the nest! Looks like these teenagers are reluctant to give up Mom’s home cooking and move out on their own. Thanks, Pam, for keeping us posted on these cuties!

    That cup is definitely overflowing. Pam, I hope you save the branch with the nest on it. It's a work of art.
