Humming Bird Food for your Feeder
To make hummingbird nectar:
mix 4 cups water and 1 cup pure cane sugar (white sugar)
in a medium pot. Bring to a boil and continue to boil for 2 minutes.
Let the mixture cool to room temperature, then pour into your feeder. Be sure to fill it all the way! Place the stopper in the bottle, invert and hang your feeder.
Hummingbird nectar will last in the refrigerator up to two weeks.
In warm months, change food daily. In cooler months, twice
a week. Clean your feeder with warm water, inside and out
It may take a couple weeks for the hummingbirds to find your
feeder. Keep the feeder full to attract the hummingbirds. Enjoy watching hummingbirdsdrink nectar from your feeder!
Caring for your Carafe or Vase
Please hand wash your carafe or vase. If your vessel doesn't seem to come clean, after being filled with flowers or wine, rather than using a bottle brush protect the cut glase with a denture cleaning tablet, Efferdent or a store brand work well. Fill your vessel with warm water, and drop in the tablet. Let it sit for a few hours or over night. Rinse and let dry.
Caring for your Drinking Glasses
Your drinking glasses are dishwasher safe. Please load carefully to protect the rim of the glass. The drinking glasses I make do not have any color fill on the sandblasted design, so that you can wash them in the dishwasher. Of course, you can also use these glasses for wild flowers or as a tea light holder.
