What a gorgeous sunshiny weekend, and these little beauties were enjoying it as much as I was ☀️ Got loads done in the garden 👩🏻‍🌾 but there’s twice as much left to do...Never know how that works 🤔🙈 Time for a hot 🚿 and a cold 🍹 Cheers flowers 🌸

Aww the first little #coneflower I bought. Common as muck and tough as old boots and the only one that reappears every year without fuss! Just a little fountain of happy, sunshiny yellow 🌼💛🌼
