One of our duties at our first house sit is actually optional. The homeowner told us we could either continue feeding the hummingbirds or let them find their own food amongst the thousands of flowers surrounding the house. We had hummers at our house in Alpine, CA and we loved watching their antics, so we decided to continue making the recipe (boil four cups water and add one cup sugar). We put out two feeders each morning and they are literally mobbed by the hungry little hummers. The most we have counted is between eight and a dozen (they are hard to count when flitting around). Each feeder takes about half a regular sized Mason jar, so two feeders = one Mason jar each day. We make about four jars of the juice per session.
We are Rose and Ray. Rose is Peruvian by birth and US citizen by choice. I am retired and Rose retired recently. This is our second trip (of six, so far) to Peru and as such, this blog may not be quite as exciting as our first one would have been. Last time, we did the Machu Picchu thing, Paracas boat tour, and Nazca lines, the Señor de Sipan Museo, and all the normal tourist stuff. This time, we are here for R&R. Two months of it. We'll try to not post anything TOO boring.... full info
