Connie wanted to see a photo of echinacea "Sundown" once it bloomed, so here it is. Also a photo of my shasta daisy. I really like both of these plants. Shasta daisy is a plant that makes me smile, and I'm wowed by the bright color on the echinacea.
In this photo you can see the lonely Ruby Giant echinacea who has yet to bloom. It gets more shade than the other plants because of the mimosa tree. Could that cause it to bloom later? I do see that it is putting out a bud, so at least it is getting somewhere!
Oh! It looks as if I'll have at least one gladiolus in bloom on Garden Bloggers Bloom day (June 15th). Yay!
"If we look at the path, we do not see the sky. We are earth people on a spiritual journey to the stars. Our quest, our earth walk, is to look within, to know who we are, to see that we are connected to all things, that there is no separation, only in the mind." - Native American, source unknown
