Back by popular demand: coneflowers!

The coneflowers are beautiful right now. In spite of our hot temps and lack of rain, this clump in front of the rock wall is thriving among the false sunflowers.

We're praying for rain, too, Melanie. We need it desperately!

I know I got your e-mail, but now I can't find it. And I thought I responded. Could you e-mail me again at and I'll respond again so you can send me seed heads!! :) That's what it was about, right? What HAPPENED to that e-mail??

Anyway, I'd LOVE that, and thank you!

Love the purple coneflowers. Did you grow them from seed? I've wanted to put some in our garden, but the nurseries in our area don't have any. Thank you for sharing.

The purple and yellow coneflowers along our fence were started from seed––in a wildflower mix we planted 5 years ago.

But we've also transplanted some coneflowers that a friend gave us and they're beautiful too. The brighter orange-y ones from a previous post.

Hope you can get some started in your garden! They're a delight.
