Humming Bird & Bee Feed / Sugar Blend

You can make it yourself, just look at the packaging of the commercial versions with preservatives, colors, and chemicals. The birds and the bees will thank you for making this. All it takes is a simple cup of sugar, and if you would like the red color, then add 1 red hibiscus flower for the hummingbirds.

Recipe  by Ivy Hunter
Makes 1 1/4 cup

1 cup organic sugar
1 cup purified hot water

Combine the two, and for hummingbirds only, you can add 1 hibiscus flower for red color.
Stir until there are no sugar crystals present, fill your feeders or a plate with sticks, leaves, flowers, and things for bees to stand on while drinking. Watch as you find out how many bees & hummingbirds are in your area. Change this every 2 weeks if something is remaining. It will not go bad, it will only ferment - which creates alcohol and may increase the chances of birds flying into windows and doing drunken things.
