Homemade Hummingbird Food

We like hummingbirds but I'm not so sure they like us.

So to lure them into our new backyard we decided to make them some irresistible, homemade food.

Luckily making your own hummingbird food is a cinch.

All you need is some sugar and water.
1 part sugar to 4 parts water to be exact.
We used 1/2 cup of sugar and 2 cups of water.

Just boil the water, add the sugar (stir until dissolved), boil for 2 minutes and let cool before adding to your hummingbird feeder.
Easy peasy.

Hummingbird food always tastes better when 2 cute kids help you make it. 

Hopefully we will have some new little friends fluttering around our backyard soon!
