“Peanut Butter and Jelly… fish?”

“Peanut Butter and Jelly… fish?” tweeted by karincandive caught my attention while surfing twitter tonight and I decided to click the link and see if it was retweetable.  It turned out to be a really cool article about jellyfish by Sean Si editor-in-chief of Expedition Fleet Blog. The pics to go along with the article are great.

Paul brought home Garlic Shrimp on rice from Pedro’s Bar tonight and it was super tasty – shrimp was cooked right and the garlic buttery goodness spilled over to the rice.

Yesterday afternoon I took my first pictures of 2011 in the garden at our new house. I have been enjoying looking at all the plants and watching hummingbirds land at the 2 feeders. There was a perfectly placed hook to hang the one Carole gave me on our veranda and Dick advised me to boil the sugar in water and make a simple syrup to help attract hummingbirds. I am even considering making a seed feeder to attract more birds – will have to Google and see what I find.

  6. Looking great! Thanks!

  7. Very pretty gardens, glad you are enjoying the new place. I love hummingbird feeds too. I have one out my front door. I have heard you should not let the nextar run out of the feeder as well…they will move on to another feeder somewhere. I may need read up on this as well.

  8. Thanks for the links Emily. Will keep an eye on the nectar to make sure it is not cloudy.

    What a beautiful garden! Glad to hear that you are going to put up a hummingbird feeder. We used to have many feeders in our yard and got a lot of hummingbirds. They are great fun to watch! One thing to be aware of is that in your hot climate, you’ll have to take down the feeder, dump out the nectar, and clean the feeder every 4-5 days as it will go rancid/cloudy in the heat. So, don’t put out too much nectar at a time; wait and see how much they eat. If you can hang it in the shade, all the better.

    Here are some good sites with tips on feeding hummingbirds:
