August Echinacea is so beautiful~
As it begins to fade & mottle it starts to resemble my watercolor palette!
I purchased a beautiful piece of wool from Kimberley Severns
to make my very first wool applique project.
When I saw the wool on-line I thought it would make a pretty hydrangea blossom.
The piece had some deeper tones when it arrived & I immediately thought
Little friend waking up on the sunny side of the day~
They fill the gardens with beauty starting late June, early July~
Soon they will lose all of their petals and American Goldfinch
will be perched on top of them snacking on seeds!
I will leave them through early frosts & the first few snowfalls.
Swallowtails have been busy this morning...
Too busy to hold still for their portraits~
Wishing you a beautiful day, Sweet Friends~
Thank you for stopping by!
