Black-Eyed Susan going to seed.

The first frost hasn’t come yet, and with today’s temperature in the 60s, the garden is still blooming and producing.  Instead of deadheading this last round of blooms, let your flowers go to seed.  It’s a great way to attract and feed our little feathered friends.  Black-Eyed Susan, Echinacea, Coreopsis, Aster, Thistle, Goldenrod, Basil, and Zinnia all have seed that birds love to pick at.
