First Day of Spring-2016!

Look at the cherry blossoms!
Their color and scent fall with them.
Are gone forever, yet mindless.
The spring comes again. -Ikkyu

The beautiful spring came; and when Nature resumes her loveliness, the human soul is apt to revive also. Harriet -Ann Jacobs

Sorry for the update…I forgot to include the author’s name in the poem.

Cone Flower

The cone flower is part of the daisy family, and is also known as Echinacea…a herbaceous plant. They are wonderful for a garden, due to their tolerance for drought situations.

Echinacea is believed to have medicinal benefit, especially for warding off colds, if taken at the first sign of one.

I love them in my garden. They are hardy and their bright color brightens up the area they are planted in. I like the shape of the leaves turned downward. I took this last year, and am waiting for this year’s blossoms.
