Garden blooms

I have bellyached before about having to start a garden from scratch, again. Though the flower gardens as a whole don’t look like much this year, there are a few plants that are being complete stars.

  1. I love your Echinacea, especially the green one. I haven’t seen one like that this year. I planted a few of them but none of them seemed to flower this year. Maybe next year will bring some blooms.

  2. Yes, I have several other varieties that didn’t flower this year. I hope they grow lots of roots over the winter.
