Hummingbirds Mostly Gone

Larry had four hummingbird feeders and lots of hummingbirds earlier. They are mostly gone now so he just has one feeder still up. I've started filling plugs with potting soil so I can take cuttings. It's fall so even though the plants are lush and beautiful, their days are numbered so I have to start my cuttings for next spring.
I didn't save cuttings of the impatiens but relied on seeds. They get started slower than cuttings, but they soon catch up and it is much easier to toss seeds than to plant cuttings I've rooted.
I'll have to take cuttings of the angel wing begonias and coleus for next year.
