Hello all!

It's almost the unofficial summer kickoff weekend and I for one am sure looking forward to the nice long weekend of sunshine! I've got all the birdhouses out about the yard now...even the hummingbird feeder and eagerly looking forward to seeing some hummingbirds in action. I've got the whole reserve of homemade sugar-water nectar taking up space in my fridge. Yep, Marzee also cooks for the birds! (Don't knock it till you try it ;o)

I got my start from my Mother in Law who made birdy brownies and little suet cakes. Her backyard was a birding oasis and she'd have different feeders for every type... whole peanuts for the blue jays, meal worms for the bluebirds, halved oranges for the orioles, black sunflower seeds for cardinals, thistle seed for the goldfinches and much more in the buffet. Those were some lucky birds to be around her!

Well, some good nectar for us humans would be this fabulous fruit salad with a kiss of honey n' orange sauce. When you're deciding what to do for your cookouts and there are pasta, potato and other mayo salads be sure to get a refreshing fruit salad like this into the mix.
