Last weekend I had a dream that I filled up this half barrel with Cosmos. Yes, I actually dream about flowers. I obsessed all week long until I could get to the garden center Saturday morning and pick some up and plant them. This is exactly how I had imagined it.
Butterfly Milkweed is seeding all over the place. Hope the neighbors don't mind a lot of fuzzies floating around.

Picked up more Aster along with the Cosmos. They are so inexpensive and beautiful.
Today I ended up going to 2 different Armstrong Garden Centers. I'd spend under $5 at my local store this morning, and as I was working at my computer and watching the Hummingbirds, I noticed some new butterflies on the Echinacea just outside my window. Of course this made me want to get more Echinacea to see what other butterflies I could draw to the garden. Well it just so happened that we had an errand to run near a different Armstrong. So we went to check it out. I picked up a beautiful Echinacea mix called Cheyenne Spirit. The moment I placed it in the garden, this Skipper was a busy little bug.
