Sea of Echincea

Here are some pictures from my garden. As you can see my echinacea is still going strong. The butterflies just love them! I have more butterflies in my garden this year than any other year. You might be able to see a few in this picture.
Here is a wider shot of this large bed of echinacea. I like the cottagy look that it gives my house. I definitely was going for an older look for this very old house (it was built in 1877- that is really old for Wisconsin!).

Love your house! And the echinacea is great too. Mine is long gone, the difference in climate between Wisconsin and New Jersey. But the birds are enjoying it. I had a small flock of four finches today feasting on the seedheads. They have the loveliest calls.

Your echinacea still looks great. I just love the fullness of your garden.

Thanks everybody. I am definitely going to let the echinacea take over a larger area. This isn't even the only patch of it I have. It can be VERY prolific!
And this isn't even a very good picture of my house, so THANKS!
