A treat for the seed eating birds such as the American Goldfinch and a good reason to just let some flowers go to seed after blooming.
Echinacea (Purple Coneflower) blooms provide lots of tasty seeds!
Cosmos are also very popular with finches! ↓
←Liatrus (Blazing Star) and Tall Verbena.↓
What a great excuse to put down your pruners and just enjoy the view. Here's a pretty goldfinch looking right back at you! (okay...I'll stick to the photography instead of poetry!)
