Now you can see the hummingbird feeder clearly paired with matching-color flowers. The monarda, a.k.a. bee balm, acts like a red flag to a bull if you're a hummingbird. If I'm not mistaken, I think this is the third year in a row that we've seen hummingbirds, but only on that red monarda.
The gooseneck loosestrife is still interesting in appearance to me, but I really need to tear most of it out. At this point it has seized territory from *so* many other plants. Even my poppies were nearly wiped out this year, between the loosestrife and the obedient plant.
