A new favourite: Coreopsis verticillata 'Moonbeam'

Housefly on Coreopsis verticillata 'Moonbeam' I got as part of the city's annual flower giveaway. I know: flies are not as glamourous as some of the other insects in this post, but these have been the only insects around the balcony during these past couple of torrentially rainy days.

I wasn't a fan of Coreopsis in general, but the sparse rosemary-like leaves and Moonbeam-y yellow flowers have charmed me. The windy balcony rail planter is not the best location, though, because hard gusts buffeting the plants have snapped more than one stem.

Also, I have discovered compelling video is hard to shoot. I was planning on putting together a little montage of the balcony garden, but coming up with footage that didn't bore even me to tears is difficult.
