More bird feeders?

I put up a hummingbird feeder near the patio. I was a little unsure of the location, so I moved it to a nearby rhodo bush.

Sure enough, I was sitting on the patio one evening and a hummer flew up to where the feeder use to hang, and then immediately spotted it in the rhodo and whizzed over there.

So I don't think the hummers mind coming so close to the patio afterall. However, since returning it to its original spot, I've yet to see a hummer.

Too bad the clematis isn't pink or more of a reddish colour for them.

This was taken one rainy morning.

We put up the bamboo for the clematis to trail along (it's not really obeying, but I've got to try).

The chickadees have been coming quite close to the windows when I'm there. I think they want me to put  a feeder out.
I don't want the chickadees to think I'm favoring the hummingbirds do I?

It's a rainforest our backyard! That's why I can't grow tomatoes anymore. It's too shady.

I've been meaning to do some photos on my neighbourhood to give whoville more of a visual setting.

Gorgeous shots! The middle photo is really magical...It reminded me of a picture I took at at indoor aquarium once...The colours are very similar.
