Eupatorium purpureum

Appearing from July and continuing until autumn, the large, domed heads are made up of numerous small flowers, so rich in pollen and nectar that they provide a feast for butterflies, bees and moths.

      I am so surprised about the different way flowers look when you get so close in – these are very delicate little flowers. Foggy here again today so a bit grey ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
      Hope it is brighter in your part of the world.

    I want to reach out and touch these Jude. Perhaps you have invented a new technology for a texture experience via internet? Beautiful!

      I thought it was a sedum from a distance. Well worth finding a spot in the garden. I really need a MUCH bigger garden. I am going to have to plan carefully.
