I think the clematis if for sure done blooming now...it has these fuzzies all over. Well, they are starting to fuzz out.
My coneflowers are not what most people would call pretty now...they are has-beens, some heads are black, all the flowers look as if they have been too close to flames. But I still like them. I keep meaning to take some of the flower heads and cast them beside the roads at the strip pit in the hopes they will take off out there. Also meant to do some sunflower seeds that way but didn't. Maybe I will get it done next spring with the sunflowers...as for the cone flowers, the fall is not over.
