My coneflowers were in a browning stage, and reached their circle of life. These photos were taken earlier this week, and now they were pretty much black after many cold days. With the morning sun shining, the heads of these flowers were so striking.
By now I bet you have seen aster flowers on many blogs already. I can never have enough of them even years after years. We have some wild white asters scattered all over the yard, but this year, I saw this lavender one in my neighbor's yard.
