Lavender Hummingbird Nectar

I had some lavender leftover and decided to give the hummingbirds a little sum’n extra.

My husband and I went out shopping today because a new store opened in town so we checked it out. – old post from another site.  This was in late February before the quarantine.

We picked up a new hummingbird feeder and a few other things.

Hummingbird Nectar is pretty easy to make. It basically sweet ass water. I don’t know any exact ratio but I do something like 2:1.

My husband helped me out with this so it was nice to have him in the kitchen doin’ a little witchy business.

Pull the buds off, let it heat up but not boil. It only takes maybe 10-15 minutes. Strain, put the water back in the pot and add a cup of sugar. Let it cool then pour.

Hummingbirds love lavender so since I had dried lavender left over, I felt like making something special for them. And wow is it sweet!

But since you’re here. I also got a few more things for my gardens and alter. 🧡🥰

I loved these because they have a little place to make offerings and/or light a tea light.

Hopefully he will keep one of my dogs from digging. Cute little gnome and I love the orange hat!
