~ A Summers Garden ~

This year there looks to be a strong possibility of actually having coneflowers alive in the garden...Along with geraniums, nothing makes me think of summer more than the beautiful coneflower. Since moving here to NC about four years ago, I have never been lucky in finding the right spot for them to grow and thrive...I had been buying plants from Lowe's and had been treating them like babies...just to see them wither and die. While at Mama's this Spring, she slipped me some of her rogue plants...They are doing sooo much better than the store bought ones...You know how they always say that a mutt is a better dog than a pure breed? Well, I think that this holds true for plants too!!


My dream is to one day have a primitive herb garden...full of bee balm, yarrow, lavender, thyme and rosemary...flanked of course by those lovely coneflowers...Hopefully, I can find a good spot in the yard for next summer...This summer I'll be watching these...and taking plenty of pictures!!

Take Care,

Hi There! I just came across your blog and I am already hooked on it! Love your little garden. I hope your cone flowers do well for you this year. They are one of my favorites too! I can't wait to read more of your blog.
Have a wonderful day.

Good luck with the coneflowers - love them too! I'm sure these will thrive - they say that plants given in friendship always thrive! Smiles & Hugs, Robin
