The Purple Coneflowers are blooming and attracting a crowd,

some were more willing to pose for pictures than others.

The chives are popular, too.

and that native prairie plant that I can't remember the name of.

Then there is the rarest visitor of all....

the SUN!

 Meanwhile, the lilies in my garden are showing up quite late this year.
They are making up for it though with a record number of blooms, for my backyard anyway.

One advantage to the cooler temperatures is that the flowers last longer.

Except for the day lilies, no extra hanging around for them!

Poor things, it's not like they can help it.  Like most flowers in the garden,
it's best to appreciate them when they're blooming and be happy for the experience. 

This tiny guy hitched a ride into the kitchen on the raspberries, wonder what he's smiling about?
Glad he was ambitious enough to climb out and not end up in the jam!
You never know what you're going to find in a garden. What have you been finding in yours?
