Hello, Carver, this is an interesting post. I love how you incorporate the finches, and yeah with its color, they can be mistaken for flowers.
the finches make it more interesting :-)
We used to have a lot of goldfinches visiting so I'm really envious of you . . . ;-)Lovely photos!
It amazes me how all the seeds are pecked away by our visiting birds! I would LOVE to have a field of these flowers but am satisfied with a little corner in my garden!
Yep, coneflowers are irresistible to goldfinches and monarch butterflies in my neighbourhood. That'e one reason I love Echinaceas. ;-) But I didn't realize they like black-eyed Susans too. How cool is that!
how very lovely you little propagators you sandy
How cool! I love gold finches, and if I thought I could attract them like this, I'd have a yard full of cone flowers and black eyed susans. Generally, though, we see the birds only in the spring, as they are passing through to cooler climates.Loved your photos! Thanks for sharing.
Great pictures..I leave the coneflower seed for the birds as well and watch the birds pecking;)
That is a lot of flowers and the gold finches are beautiful to see. Spirithelpers
I do not know the flowers, but are beautiful!
I thought the flowers were nice - then I saw the pretty goldfinches...there's some real competition for who's the prettiest.
What a wonderful bonus you captutrd! Your Goldfinches are such a spectacular colour and, as you say, blend in so well amongst the meadow flowers. Such lovely late summer shots.
My coneflowers aren't quite this far along and I didn't realize the goldfinch ate the seeds. Gives me something to watch for.Nice shots Carver!
was just thinking the flowers look so plastic being so colorful against the backdrop of untrimmed grass n leaves... looks so beautiful n out of place but trim them n leave them in an arrangement they will look so wonderful
As always, Carver, your photos give me a lift. I especially enjoyed the first "low" picture posted below. It made me feel I, too, was travelling that road. I think that is what good photography is all about!!Speaking of Boone, my daughter has some original work from a Boone artisan named Diane Allison. She makes fabulous gameboards and has a great blog, too. She often posts lovely pics of the NC mts.Well, keep on with your great work.JanetJMart
very earthy look on the flowers. i have not seen those for real though but they are sure pretty as always carver.
Those are beautiful.You make them look so vivid, I can almost smell them :)
I enjoyed this post so much, not only for your photos of the flowers but of the Goldfinches. Thanks so much for sharing. I would also like to thank you for your visit and for leaving such nice comments on my blog. Have a great week.
Good captures, at first I didnt see the bird for the flowers
I love to see those little guys come to mine. I have several baby goldfinch crying for food from their parents near the thistle feeders.. Cute.... Michelle
Lovely how much the seeds attract the goldfinches :)Hope your computer is fixed :)
Wonderful capture! And don't you love the goldfinches song? Very nicely done.
Hello dear Carver!Nice to see you blogging without computer problems now! ;)I hope everything is okay now!Cool post!Léia
oh how cool is that. the gold finch is the iowa state bird so i remember studying it in elementary school. been so long since i have seen one. i pretty much only get the screamer jay and an occassional hummingbird.
Love this - if I saw it in my garden I would surely think the blossoms are hopping about :)
CarverWonderful series of beautiful flowers!Thanks for posting.Luiz
