Summer succulents...

I have been busy in the yard pulling weeds, watering like crazy ( trying to keep plants from dying with these HOT temperatures) and I have discovered the easy care of succulents... I love them! They basically take care of themselves literally....I just splash them with a little water here and there and forget about them..

Every time I'm shopping at Lowe's, Home Depot, or a nursery those little bitty sized pots they come in, sitting next to the cash register practically yell at me " Hey you look at me take me home with you"...
I just can't resist their beauty!! I love the rosette ones. Don't you? 
I love this....and simple to do.. I used the dish that comes with the pot, drilled some holes and listo...ready for planting! Easy,breezy beautiful...(From a Cover-girl commercial, I think)

Dear hummingbirds,
I don't know what I have done to alienate all of you

Please help me

I went out in search for the prettiest feeder, looked for the perfect spot to feed you,
bought the most expensive red nectar there was 
and when that got old, and full of ants

I made my own sweet concoction.

I changed the sugar water
once a week, and still  
no signs of you.
I have googled and binged my fingers off
and done just about everything
I come by this window and take a peek
 morning, afternoon and evening and still I don't see


No signs of you anywhere...

I am waiting anxiously for you to come take a sip
I know once you discover this cozy spot
you will love it!
I am begging you to come fly by take a sip, flap your wings, and enjoy your new feeder
