coneflowers

My garden is full of purple coneflowers right now, a natural butterfly attractor. I tried to be like Abe and get some beautiful shots of monarchs resting gently on the coneflower leaves, but no luck and almost got myself stung by a bee in the process.

I tried to be like you and get a picture of the finches living in an old birdhouse I put in the garden for decoration and my digital camera just can't do it...sigh...loved your statue photo as well...so very adorable.
My cone flowers are very weak this year. I used to have a garden full of them and this year only 3 came back. Not sure if I need to do something special to them or not.

Oh wow. I suggest you keep trying. I was sitting on our swing watching the wind blow when this huge butterfly blew in and settled on the cone flowers. It was a giant swallowtail. I took a lot of pictures of it.

My wife, Patty, and I have been married for 52 years today. Imagine that.
