Seasons in the Garden - Coneflowers

There are lots of flowers in the garden that indicate the changing seasons too.  In our garden, two dominant groups, the coneflowers and the brown-eyed susans paint the garden in colours of August for me - mainly purples and yellows, but a few other interesting blooms too.  These are a few of the coneflower varieties we have in bloom at the moment.

  2. You have a lot of coneflower colours! I love them. I have the purple ones but they don't really shape into cones much.
