CINDY'S SNAPSHOT: A delicate butterfly and a hardy coneflower

There is so much lovely colour in our gardens right now. Teresa Smith shares some of the beauty from her yard in Fall River, N.S.  The delicate butterfly seems quite content just to sit on this alluring Coneflower.  The Coneflower (Echinacea) is easy to grow and very hardy, quite resistant to environmental stresses like heat, humidity, cold and drought. Best of all, pests don’t seem to bother with these beauties.
