One of My Favorites This Time of Year and the Bees Too!

I have written about this flower before.  It is a Rudbeckia herbstsonne.  The bees are happily enjoying it now.  It is at least eight feet tall and gives quite a presence in the garden.  Will be talking about my trip again.  Thought my Herb Companion post would be up, but they are getting ready to come east to the Mother Earth News Fair at Seven Springs over the weekend.  I'm going to be meeting KC Compton, Editor in Chief of The Herb Companion magazine and Jim Long, a long time favorite herbal author of mine!  Got to run.  Decanting vinegar and making some new.  Hope you are having a great day wherever you may be.  Talk to you later.

I love these flowers. Wish I had a plant for my garden. They look like a cone flower. Are they one? Nancy, you should see all the lavender I have just ripe for the picking in my garden and I'm not going to use it. I wish I could give it to someone.

No Julie, this is in the black eyed Susan family. You may be able to order it from a catalog out your way. Gee, a florist might be able to use your lavender or someone who does craft fairs may be able to use it to make sachets to sell! It would be a shame to let it go to waste. Thanks for stopping by!
