cone flower – echinacea

10 Jun

To me, the best thing about cone flowers is that they attract gold finches. These tiny, bright yellow birds like to sit on the flowers and eat the seeds from the flower heads. I saw a pair of gold finches by the pond earlier this spring, and I’m hoping the cone flowers in bloom will bring them back.
