Pollination Celebration

We took Nest on the road this weekend to the 1st Annual Pollination Celebration at the LSU AG Research Station in Hammond, LA.
We love all things with wings and as you can imagine, I was in my element!  I brought our line of Parasol Hummingbird Feeders - they were a hit!  And garden flags and our popular Husdon Valley Seed Co organic and heirloom seeds.
And this favorite Cavallini decorative paper.  My family helped man our booth so I was able to take part in some of the activities - like the amazing hummingbird banding demonstration.
The gardens were a sight to behold too, with a buzz not only of many hummingbirds but butterflies and bees too.
It was an amazing adventure, we saw several regular customers and made new friends and of course we learned more about pollinators.  I was delighted to share a lot of my experience attracting and feeding hummingbird and was surprised to hear how some people had not seen one hummingbird all season - we easily see four at one time in our yard as it's prime time for ruby throated hummingbirds.  If you've had a lack-luster season, please review my tips to prepare for next year.
