I think I’ve used this cone flower as my photo during this week every year. Last year, I took a photo of it on the 10th of July. I’m not sure when it flowered, but it must have done sometime between when MB left and the 4th of July (when I noticed it).
Cone Flower
I can’t tell you what makes a flower bloom so beautiful in the midst of our Texas drought and heat; but, it’s a beautiful sight and it makes me smile when I walk out the front door and see it. Marita Beth’s decision to plant the cone flowers in that front square garden directly in front of the door was inspired.
