I never have luck growing echinacea. The deer eat it. We have a lovely bed of it by the entrance to the library loading dock, though.

The babies are finally starting to bloom. There are also more day lilies budding. Hopefully our neighborhood doe won’t clear cut them.

I don’t remember seeing many of these guys in previous years. They’ve been regular visitors this summer.
