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

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.
