What gorgeous captures Q!! Such beautiful eye~catching color's!The male Gold finch~he's stunning!How nice of you to share all of your cone flower seeds with him! :DWishing you a beautiful week Q!!Hug's,Cat
What a colorful image Sherry. You are quite right about the little rascals eating all the seed. That is ok by me becasue they are the resaon I have them anyway.
Dear Cat,Thank you!I used to grow the coneflowers for the butterflies and birds. Now I am growing them for me too. I am hoping to enlarge my cone flower bed as the years go by. I guess I will need to buy seed!I do enjoy the bugs and the birds and the blogs!Namaste,Sherry
Dear Lisa,It is okay with me too. I just need to plant more. Actually all I need are the leaves. I think I will gather and dry them after the birds get the seeds or before frost. I have been looking about for another area to grow Coneflowers. I gave up one small veggie bed and now I am thinking of tucking them into spots here and there. So many butterflies like them too. Next year I think I will Winter Sow a few flats for spring planting. They do take two years to bloom. I am on a coneflower campaign! Sherry
Hi Sherry....for a goldfinch that colourful, he could have all the seeds in my garden.....
Dear Cheryl,There are a small flock of Gold Finches, maybe a dozen, that come and go to the finch feeder and the bird baths.I like to photograph them with flowers when ever I can! They also like the sunflowers when they are in seed.I like your Green Finches too. The finch family has very colorful birds in it.Sherry
What beautiful photos! The colours are so vivid.
Dear Wendy,I watched yesterday while this Gold Finch plucked petals off the coneflower. He only did it to the one flower. They are very beautiful birds. I love their little call too.Sherry
I wouldn't mind if this beautiful male goldfinch would take all my coneflower seeds, as long as it stayed in my garden. But unfortunately it doesn't ;-) !!
Dear Barbara,I watched this Gold Finch in the sunflowers too.I know the seeds are very far from ripe. Maybe he was getting ittle bugs.The Gold Finches are so pretty in their summeer dress. We have a small flock, maybe a dozen birds, that come and go.Sherry
