Yellow Coneflower in Winter

Snow has officially arrived in Chicago. I took this photo earlier today. The only positive thing I can say about snow is it provides a lot of nice photo opportunities.

Yellow Coneflower in Winter

These were beautiful Tall Yellow Coneflowers this summer. I left the perennials standing this year so the birds could eat the seeds in the flower cones. They also add an interesting dimension to the garden in the winter.

    What a great idea to leave them up for the birds. The first snow is always the most lovely, I think.

      I always want to tidy up before winter but I kept reading that the birds eat those seeds so I should leave the plants up. So this year I did. And there were goldfinch climbing all over them pecking at the seeds.

    We hardly ever get snow here, so it’s a real treat when it happens. I can’t imagine having snow all the time. Beautiful picture!
