Hummingbirds Sighted in San Antonio

They're here! There have been multiple sightings in San Antonio of hummingbirds. Our friends are here. Hope you have set out your feeders if not check your yard and bring in your old feeders, give them a good wash and fill them with fresh nectar. The preparation is quite simple just 1 part pure cane sugar to 4 parts water, no artificial color is needed.

Monarchs Arrive in Texas

The Monarch butterfly has left their wintering grounds in Mexico and are arrving in Texas. If you do not have milkweek do what you can to get some and set them out in your garden. They will need host plants for the next generation and will also need lots of flowers for nectar. We hope this will help. Other plants your garden should have are curled parsley for the black swallowtail and passion vines for the gulf fritirlary.
