The Cone Family

These pink flowers are an expanding bunch of color and "Worthy of a postcard." The August theme day in the City Daily Photo blog community is: "Worthy of a postcard." I'm sending you cyber greetings from our backyard!

  1. Les fleurs n'ont pas l'air contentes...
    Ce doit être tôt le matin : elles devaient être en train de dormir.

  2. You can't miss with flowers, esp. if they are part of your personal landscape. I'd buy it!

  4. Now this is a different take on our theme today and why not. What lovely flowers. I've never seen them here, only in America. But they must exist.

    I've not forgotten your postcard (I lie, I went in to Monaco and I did forget - so next time...)

  14. I always wonder why these are called PURPLE coneflowers when it's so obvious that they are pink. :))

  15. Lovely flowers. My daughter was given a handful of cone flower seeds at a wildlife camp recently. Cone flowers attract butterflies, apparently. We're going to bring the seeds back to Beirut and plant them in our window boxes. I think they'll love the temperate climate.
