Our terrace garden is mostly made up of varieties of salvias and fuchsias. Terra cotta pots are placed out and fully planted mostly for New ’s only hummingbird . . . the Ruby-throated Hummingbird, Archilochus colubris, who visits often during the and summer months. It is a joy each year to observe breeding hummingbirds in our gardens. As the first day of winter approaches, I imagine the immature and female below are now settled somewhere in Central America.
