flowers. Encourage butterflies to visit your yard and pollinate your plants by making a butterfly feeder. It's easy!

Note: Some evidence suggests dyes may have negative health effects on humming birds. If you have humming birds in your region, we suggest making this sugar solon without dyes and making your jar extra colorful, instead!

Sorry I don't agree with your design although it is a nice idea. Without a perch to stand on
the hummingbirds expend more energy trying to eat than getting fed by standing on a perch. Perhaps you can come up with a design that includes a perch for them. Also, hummingbirds are very territorial and will fight other s to guard "their" source so space the feeders outside of viewing from other hummingbirds and give others a chance!
This is my second fountain in my shade garden. It is made from an old millstone that has a tub underneath. The gazing ball in the background sits on an old tree stump that was retrieved from a river and left to dry a year before we drilled up the center of it for electrical so we could make the gazing ball glow at night.
