Nature taking its wonderful course


These are the pictures that I took in my garden over the last couple of days.

    Love it.  My verbena still hasn't flowered.  South east England.  My steeple bush on the other hand has started.  What's your lovely purple whirly flower?

    Wonderful, wonderful pics Jacqueline!  I have butterfly envy!!

    My daughter and I spotted a couple of dragonfly nymphs as we were clearing some blanket weed from our pond the other day but didn't manage to get a photo!

    Thank you Missy Krissy, and Wayside the purple whirly flower is called Liatris Spicata, it flowers from the top downwards. Common Name: blazing star Type: Herbaceous perennial. The bees just love it.

    I thought they could well have been Liatris.  I have two but they are always late if at all.  I don't think it's wet enough for them on our soil.
