A generous donation was made by the family of Ms. Janice Kruse to support our community outreach work. Ms. Kruse loved hummingbirds and nature and visited our garden in September 2018. She sadly passed away on January 6, 2019. We are so very grateful to Ms. Kruse and her family for this memorial donation!

Our thanks to everyone who attended the 2020 Garden tours. A special thank you to Bob Ross at Wild Birds Unlimited for donating items for the hourly door prizes. We are glad that we could share our hummingbird garden with you in a safe way.

Welcome to our web site of hummingbird gardening. We have been into this for 19 years and have learned from books, experts around the country and our own trial and error. Above are links to our Gallery of Hummingbird Flowers (with a hummingbird at each flower) and our newsletter, The Nectar News (previously, the Dane County Nectar News). The nectar news is no longer mailed as hard copies. Periodic updates are sent by email and available on our blog. If you wish to join our email distribution list (we never share your email address with anyone else), please send an email to Kathi at her address listed at the bottom of this page.

If you have comments, please send an email to kathijr@yahoo.com
