Bee Balm and Hummingbirds

Well the bee balm is in full bloom and the hummingbirds are happy little campers. I thought you might enjoy this picture of one of my gardens which is host to countless butterflies and of course the hummingbirds. That's while it lasts.....

We have a 'visitor'. Not sure what he is.... but he has a ravenous appetite and he loves bee balm.
At any given time you can sit on my front porch and watch as first one stalk of bee balm begins to quiver. (Music from Jaws) Suddenly it's 2" shorter... then 6" shorter. I watch as my bee balm very quickly gets sucked down into the earth... like Caddy Shack! Sometimes if he's not all that hungry he plays lumberjack and 'timberrrrrrrrrrr' they fall over.

Ah... life in the country :o)
