Today's Flowers: Coneflower

These flowers were blooming in abundance outside a medical building near the Biltmore in Providence when I was there last month.  They were surrounded by black-eyed Susans and phlox, and it was very beautiful.  One of the great advantages of being an early riser is seeing such things at rest and beautiful, before the day gets busy with people rushing about and all the tension and energy that go with that.  Bunches of flowers are like treetops in that they seem to create their own worlds, and once you get in, you don't want to get out.  Too pretty.

  8. You're right, this is too pretty. You're almost convincing me to become an early riser. So hard to change habits though.

  9. Yes. I used to wake up and take walks
    early in the morning around 5 am and I have to admit it is the best time in the world to see the world waking up.

    I saw these flowers just the other day . They sure have hard and prickly
    heads. Amazing flowers.
