    It’s a Girl! Another Baby Panda Born

    Pandas have long been endangered and captive breeding efforts have been meager at best, largely unsuccessful at worst. However, this summer has seen an upturn and given a little more hope for the panda species. The newest panda cub was born on August 25th, and it’s a girl! Only twelve days old, and the Smithsonian National Zoo has big plans for her.

    The cub will stay with Mei Xiang (her mother) for a little over 2 years, until it is naturally weaned

    So, what’s her name? Well, according to Discovery News, they will be following Chinese tradition:

    As is tradition in China, where pandas originate, the baby will be named when it is 100 days old, on Dec. 2.

    Make Your Own Hummingbird Feeder Juice

    Hummingbirds are always a welcome sight at my house. They’re fast, cute, and really fun to watch. They also help pollinate your flowers, so attracting them definitely has benefits for gardeners. You can attract them a number of ways: from planting colorful flowers to avoiding using pesticides. But the easiest way to bring them into your yard is by installing a red hummingbird feeder. Pam at BrownThumbMama shares her list for the perfect hummingbird feeder solution:

    Hummingbird feeder solution is easy to make: 1 part plain white sugar to 4 parts water (e.g., 1 cup sugar with 4 cups water). Bring it to a boil to to kill any bacteria and allow it to cool completely before putting it into the feeder.
