Subject: Hummingbirds, Monarchs, Giant Swallowtail -- Cumberland County
We've been seeing 2 to 3 hummingbirds through Saturday 10/6/18. Also
seeing a few monarch butterflies on the zinnias through Saturday, and a
giant swallowtail last week (10/2/18). Did not have time to look very
much today.

The hummingbirds (look like ruby throated) are favoring the cypress
vine, Wendy's Wish and the bit of pineapple salvia that is blooming. We
had one pineapple salvia plant that started blooming weeks ago in
September, but all the other plants just started getting a few flowers
this weekend. Seems like they are about a week late this year.
