All Gardens Need Coneflowers

“Man's heart away from nature becomes hard.”
- Standing Bear -

What garden would be complete without coneflowers? This is the lovely Echinacea purpurea ‘White Swan’




We don’t have much further to go before my garden and I are joyfully reunited!

  1. That's right - as far as I'm concerned, if we can make it through this month, we're on the home stretch!

  2. I had white swan echinacea and after several years it reverted back to purple. A garden mystery. Can't wait to get outside and play in the dirt.

    1. That is really odd. I wonder if it has anything to do with the soil? Or some other factor.

  5. It's me again! I'd like to follow your blog but I don't see the follow button. Is there another way? (I'm electronically challenged)

    1. I added the 'followers' gadget on the right side. I should have done this a long time ago; people have asked me often how to follow my blog, and you think I'd finally get the message!
