Signs of Summer

Echinacea / purple coneflower. This was the first bloom, and now they are going strong... Let's hope we'll have more summer to go along with them.

Wonderful! I have seen these growing over here recently. I have always wondered which part of the plant is used for the herbal remedies? Supposed to help your immune system fight infections..

Gorgeous colour.
We've had record rainfall this
Summer in S.Ontario. Great for some plants and deadly to others.
Your garden looks so lush..!
