Yesterday I talked my husband into going to a local, out-of-the-way nursery just to look. I told him that we had only one rule--we couldn't buy anything!
We walked through the annuals, and almost bought a small, mango-colored flower (can't remember the name now).
So, when we were approached by an employee in the perennials, I felt confident. When she introduced us to the minty smelling hyssops, and then suggested an orange sherbert color combined with a red one, my husband caved and bought five of them for me (3 orange, 2 red).
We placed them near our hummingbird feeders, and we're hoping to see more hummingbirds because of it. What's even better is that they are perennials!

I saw one tiny tiny tiny gray hummingbird on a wire in my backyard. I wasn't sure what it was until it flew away - I need to buy a hummingbird feeder! I'm going to look up what Hyssops are! Thanks!
