I’ve let the weeks slip past without posting new photo entries for the Green Thumb Sunday meme! It’s time to rectify this. How about two, just to catch things up?
Click each thumbnail for a full-size image. The first is a bee enjoying a purple coneflower (echinacea purpurea – not sure which cultivar). Look at all the pollen on his legs! The second shot is of bronze fennel (Foeniculum vulgare ‘Purpureum’ ) with globe thistle (echinops ritro) blurred in the background for contrast. I enjoy growing combinations of plants I know will photograph well because of their varied colors and texture.
Gardeners, plant and nature lovers can join in every Sunday!
