Photograph of a bumble bee on a cone flower by Doug Couvillion

Earlier this summer the bumble bees really enjoyed our cone flowers.

A few weeks ago the flowers were dried and covered in seed. Instead of bumble bees it was the finches feeding off them. I hoped to get a photo of the flower heads turned to seed but I waited too long and my wife “cleaned them up.”

I guess we have to keep up appearances? Maybe next summer I’ll get to them in time.

Here’s to your summer being full of natural wonders!
