Cruising among the coreopsis on a summer day...

...that's what bees and butterflies do. It's always fun to catch one in flight. In addition, the gold finches like the seeds of these bright, cheerful flowers. As soon as the seed pods form, the goldies begin to pick away at the pods, seeds not dry yet; gorging themselves on fresh seeds and scattering lots around the beds. So this year, I'm dead-heading the coreopsis.

One of our home grown potatoes seemed to smile at me as it was readied for cook pot.
