Yarrow or achillea filipendula Parker's.
This clump of snow capped yarrow has been entertaining me all winter. The snow cones bob around in the breeze.
Sorry for the disgusting looking fence!

Hard to believe the Soup is coming to an end. I've enjoyed contributing and looking at others' contributions. Very sparse pickings for the final entry for me...

My Yarrow doesn't like it where it is and it can darn well get used to it...so no pic of it.

Instead, a cheerful Zinnia in a nice hot summery pink!

And TA to Kelly and Eeyore for a great job done!

Wonderful soup this year. . .
Zinnias - all grown from seed - like trying different varieties every Year. This year it is Zinnia "Envy". A green zinnia, and Zinnia Cotton Candy. from Park's Seeds.

The ugly stump looks quite at home there and I would never get sick of zinnias. I like yours and all the others. Wouldn't it be great if they were all combined.
