Working in the garden……

The last 2 days have had low humidity and cooler temperatures.  It was perfect for working outside.  This year I am making an attempt to have the whole back garden cleaned up before winter.  I will leave the coneflower heads.  As you can see the goldfinches love to lunch on them.  They will be the only dead stalks to clean up in the spring.  Another reason I like to leave them is for markers where the plants are.  I may move a few to new spots next spring and it will be easy to find them.

  1. Yellow Finches have been on my coneflowers too. A friend wants some of mine and I will gladly give them, but I hate to deprive the birds. We have yard work planned for later in September, it can still get very hot here.
