My all time favourite Echinacea Purperea is already looking like this and we officially still have one week of summertime to go. This year the seasons seem to have moved forward at least a month. Still I think she looks strikingly attractive! She is already provinding her seeds to the birds. Such a gracious and productive and useful plant. During summer she produces nectar for the bees and after flowering she feeds the birds.
How are the plants in your garden or area showing up? I’d like to know so do drop me a line.
