Bumblebee  (Gaillardia aristata (Blanketflower) "Goblin")

I photographed this bumblebee on Gaillardia "Goblin". I first bought a single plant back in 2004 and that plant only lived for 2 years but it has self-seeded so that now I have many plants in several different beds. LOVE this flower !

These are great flowers. I find the plants don't last long either, and I'm growing from seed to keep the supply going. I save seed but the natural safe seeding doesn't seem to happen here. Maybe our winters are too cold.
