The Echinacea (purple coneflower) and the Black Eyed Susan's are finished for the year. My front garden is looking like Morticia Adam's garden. It's time to cut it back for the year.
I like all the seasons of the garden, from all the freshly blooming plants in the Spring to the dormant garden of the winter. The only reason I keep these flowers around as long as I do after they have gone to seed, is that the finches like to visit the coneflowers and eat at the seed heads.
Can you see the little visitor we had the other day?
She wasn't as bright yellow as most, in fact she seemed a bit greenish, but she was sweet.
I may need to get the bird feeder out soon, because this garden is going to sleep tomorrow.
