Today we delivered hummingbird feeders, hummingbird accessories, fruit/jelly feeders, and other garden art to When Pigz Fly in Raleigh, NC. What a fabulous store! Jim and Diane will welcome you with open arms and answer any and all questions you may have. The creativity and talent of people continues to amaze me. Even if you don't make a purchase, you can amuse yourself for a good while just looking around. Stop in! It's worth a visit!
Next month, visitors and residents in Saugatuck, MI, will find Ozarklake feeders at The Owl House. And just in time for the return of the Ruby-throats to the area!
We'll be heading out soon for our spring shows. March 12-13 will find us at the Baton Rouge Spring Garden Show, and we'll be at the Memphis Spring Fling March 18-19. In April, we'll be at the Festival des Fleurs in Lafayette, LA, on April 2-3. The following weekend, April 8-9, we'll be at the Southwest Louisiana Garden Expo in Lake Charles. We're going back to the Illiana Garden and Pond Expo in Crown Point, IN, April 23-24. After that we'll head west, stopping at the Big Bodacious Spring Expo in Spanish Forks, UT, May 6-7, and then the Great Salt Lake Bird Festival in Farmington, UT, May 13-14.
And MOST IMPORTANTLY, the hummers will be returning to Lake of the Ozarks in about 45 days, followed by the Orioles!!! Whoo-hoo!!!! Watch the 1st sightings dates fill in the map at www.hummingbirds.net/map.html If there have been no sightings in your area and you see one, send the information so hummingbird bander Lanny Chambers can put it on his migration map!
