We chose these flowers because we wanted to invite hummingbirds and bees. I don’t know if bees prefer red over other hues, but I know that hummingbirds are attracted by reds and pinks. I once had a hummingbird land on my shoulder because my bathing suit was bright pink. I’ve been waiting for it to happen again ever since.
And the hummingbirds have come. Some days we have several, but every day at least one of them shows up.
