Most people pinch the flower spikes off coleus, but I've been leaving a few on the plant
They're not at all impressive,
but a hummingbird visits them. We've seen it frequently- it even flies over to the tomato plants and I think visits the tithonia too. The other day my four-year-old saw it and she was so excited she was squealing: "Mommy, come quick! I saw the hummingbird! I see it! I see the hummingbird!"

I am not at all good at getting photos of regular birds, so I don't even try to get one of the hummingbird. I just watch it and marvel.
