It is always a good day when I can spend time in the garden looking at and photographing my coneflowers. When I visit them where they are sprinkled throughout the gardens around my yard, I feel like I’m standing among friends. I love how each blossom is unique like every person’s face is unique. It just takes a few minutes to pay attention and notice the different shapes and shades of the petals and the center disk. Coneflower flower heads like sunflowers are actually a collection of florets – according to Wikipedia the centers have between “200-300 fertile, bisexual disc florets but some have more.” No wonder they have such special energy about them!
