Crazy for coneflowers – Weekly Photo Challenge

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!

  1. Relatively few people look closely enough at flowers to see how much variety there can be in a single cultivar. I’m glad you can see the individuals and not just the crowd!
