My favorite wildflower, the purple coneflower or echinacea, is a medicinal plant whose flowers can be used to make immune-system-boosting tea.  The genus name of the flower comes from the Greek word echino which means hedgehog and refers to its spiny cone.  

As we approach our first freeze of the season and the cone flowers approach the end of this year’s perennial cycle, here are three final pics of the season.  What do you think?  Do you have a favorite below?

  1. Nice collection of photos, but I like the first one the best! 🙂

  2. Beautiful series. My favourite is the second one because of the composition. 🙂

    • Thanks, Inga! I love coneflowers and have taken a ton of photos of them over the past two years for the blog. I like how shot #2 turned out so much different than the rest.

  3. Love how focused the first one is! Really clear and beautiful 😀


I love hearing from you!
