Just a reminder, that everyone should look out for our feathered and furry friends during the heats spells that we have been having.
A hummingbird feeder is an inexpensive way to have hours of entertainment.
If you don't have a bird bath, put out a large shallow pan of fresh water on a table or a bench. Try not to put it next to a bush, where the neighborhood kitty cat can hide and wait for lunch.
Butterflies love overly ripe bananas, so be creative in finding a place for it outdoors. You've always wondered what to do with that banana anyway.
No matter where you live, there is a variety of wildlife that could benefit from your thoughtfulness.
Aussiegirl and I would love to hear about the critters in your neck of the woods.
