August flower




Here is a pretty purple coneflower my son in law Steve gave me .
Steve has great drifts of these flowers and I have trouble keeping them going from one year to the next.Perhaps this clump will make it through the winter this year.

A lot of tent caterpiller webs in my trees this year.They have been in the crabtrees and the oak tree.
We have cut and burned 3 so far and there is one more too high for us to reach. Will be using dormant oil on the trees in early spring of 2008.

Tent caterpillar webs. Is that an Eastern thing?

Glad the coneflower is taking to your garden!
