Blooming Tuesday and Animal Wednesday

As I have been sitting outside more since we have had absolutely perfect weather I sat and watched a hummingbird going to the flowers around the garden. One of my favorite flowers is the annual BLack and blue Salvia. The hummers absolutely love it. It is in semishade and it still blooms up a storm. I wonder what it would do if it got full sun as it should have. There is now a male hummingbird in our garden that battles for all of his favored feeding stations. Happy Animal Wedensday too.
