June 1st Coneflower Bloom

1 June 2009

I’m pretty sure the gardening books will tell you that in our growing zone, echinacea will bloom in June. Well . . . they are right! As if the plant could read what is expected of it, right on time—it bloomed today! It’s the first of June, and between trips to the storage unit and that one last trip to the Scarborough faire site, I spotted our first pink coneflower bloom of the season.

Now, to pack for New York!
