From the few examples planted in a flower front bed a few years ago, the Purple Coneflowers have needed no care at all and multiplied in a way very pleasing to us, and to pollinators both resident and passing through. There’s a honeybee on a flower in the lower right quadrant.
We spend most of our relaxing time in the backyard on the deck. Sometimes, though, we settle in this spot, which provides a completely different perspective on our humble little garden.
Prospecting for pollen, a honeybee mines a coneflower.
This Purple Coneflower stands out from the background.
Back on Thursday – possibly. An event has my full attention. We will see how my time goes that evening.
Though evenings’ light is almost gone, a Purple coneflower still graces with a dash of colour.
