On our way to dinner we had some magnificent skies.
We are about 8 inches behind in our rainfall totals.
In the garden I have a couple different kinds of Echinacea purpurea. One is 'Magnus' and not sure what the other one is, but it is shorter and a bit darker blooms.
I love how the petals start off almost pale yellow as they are opening. I leave the spent flower heads on for the Goldfinches. They love the seeds.
The smaller ones are a nice backdrop for the tall blooms of 'Magnus'.
