A Few Garden Minutes Last All Day

Another beautiful day in central North Carolina and it would have been a day perfect for working in the garden, but the day passed another way. Early this morning there were just a few moments to enjoy the crispness of the air, notice the bird sounds, greet next-door neighbors and savor that feeling one gets from being outside among the flowers.

Echinacea purpurea (Purple Coneflower)

Lychnis coronaria (Rose Campion)

Achillea filipendulina (Fern-leaf Yarrow)

Penstemon mexicali ‘Pike’s Peak Purple’ (Beardtongue)

    I have only a bunch of minutes in the morning to enjoy the garden, before I leave to work, but those minutes last all day to me too, I know what you mean!
    Very pretty penstemon!

    Hi, I’m Nadezda. I love your Echinacea! I tried to plant its seeds, but unfortunately they frozen in winter. Now I’ve got new small plants.

      Thank you Nadezda! Glad you visited my blog. Yours looks interesting–I look forward to exploring it more. Hope the new Echinacea plants will do well for you. It is a native plant here and helps me fill out the border in summer.
