Coneflower Blossoming

Posted on Jun 20, 2016

This Eastern Purple Coneflower (Echinacea purpure) is one of many that are about to pop open and provide food for our pollinators all summer long. I cannot wait to see what shows up in our gardens and yards – the bees, the butterflies, and the unexpected. The plant has a beautiful look to it even before the flower explodes with stunning colors. Every single bit of nature is art!
