The days are getting cooler as the sunlight shifts southwards and the days will become shorter as winter arrives. We are still hosting many hummingbirds who drain our feeders daily. The kitchen garden, full of tarragon and sage , rosemary and melissa, has been ravaged by the geese and they have eaten all the thyme! No matter... The bees are loving the flowers in the large planters and the drips left by the migrating hummers as they pass through. The hives are less active in the morning until the sun warms their hives.
