Echinacea



Echinacea-2---8x10-wm

Happy New Year!!!
I hope everyone had a great time ringing in 2011.

Here is another flower from the arboretum this past summer.
I'm missing all the flowers already!
...only about 4 more months before they start up again.

  19. Hey, Katie! I love this shot! I have lots of cone flowers--as I call them--in my yard. I love how they attract the butterflies.

    Thanks for sharing this! I'm ready for spring! We had our one snow on Christmas, and this Southern Belle is done!!

    Happy New Year!
