Humming bird sucking nectar from Zenias

I had a very successful experience growing flowers in my patio garden this year. I first started planting flowering shrubs last year and was quite successful having chrysanthemums and marigold last year. This year I planted marigolds, zinnia, asters and bachelor's buttons. With daily watering and proper care I had quite a bit of foliage growing in my patio this year. It has been exciting to see many humming birds, American robins and house sparrows paying daily trips to my garden. I did have on or two incidents of powdered mildew, white ants and flies which I took care of at the right time. I am posting a few photos from my summer garden.
