Did you read my dollar tree post from last week? You can find some really great items and it's awesome because everything is only one dollar. :)
Recently, I had a very pretty hummingbird fly up to an old feeder I had hanging up. He sped away after realizing there wasn't any food and that it was just an old faded, dirty feeder. I threw the old feeders out. I had on my list to get some new feeders.
So guess what this weeks find is? Yep, you got it.....plastic hummingbird feeders.

Before I hung up the feeders, I took them apart and washed them real good.
I then looked on Pinterest for hummingbird food recipes. I came across this site and this one. I then boiled my sugar water and put in the fridge to chill.

When I got home from work I put the feeders back together and filled them up with the chilled sugar water. :) I then hung them up outside.
The feeders are hanging off a basket I have on my deck. I plan to use these baskets this year for some plants. I just need to get some coconut liners. The thing hanging in the middle of the basket is a wind chime. We got it almost 15 years ago as a wedding gift from the Bents'. When I'm outside in my garden and the wind blows I hear the chimes and it reminds me of my wedding. :)
I can see the feeders out my kitchen window. I hope I can catch some hummingbirds enjoying some refreshing sugar water. *fingers crossed*
Now I'm thinking of getting 2 more feeders to hang on the basket on the other side of my deck. :)
