plants for hummingbirds

I’m always looking for plants and flowers that will keep the hummingbirds coming to the garden.

I found this succulent plant, Aloe Blue Elf, which is said to be a hummingbird’s favorite.

It’s an easy-care plant. It will bloom with small orange-red flowers on tall spikes. And I have been fortunate to see hummingbirds hovering around them, as well as butterflies, too.

A beautiful spring day in Southern California.

Time to be near a water source, preferably one that has yet to be explored.

Ended up at Lake Perris, with its tranquil views.

A selection of Malaysian desserts in petite-sized servings. A favorite is the layered jelly (on the right), especially the one with the creamy white layer, made from coconut milk.
