Flowers by the roadside


Click photos to enlarge.


Yesterday morn, I forget even why Roger and I were out, but I had him make a quick run out by the strip pits where the picture in my header is taken. Well, it is a back road we take to get to and from there. On the way home he noticed that the light telling us we had a low tire was on...and I got out and looked and it was getting rather low. We were kind of hurrying home when I spotted these coneflowers growing by an older abandoned house. I had to stop and take a few pictures, but didn't take a bigger view and wish I had. But it isn't too far out there so maybe I will get back out there in a few days.

The coneflowers are a lovely find. I like them in my gardens because they bloom a long time, need very little care and attract butterflies.

Nice coneflowers and the variety of pink in them is great.

Beautiful! I want to try growing some of these one day. I hope you snap a picture of the abandoned house also if you go back.

I've always liked those. I didn't know what they were called but I liked them.

What a special treat as you traveled, the house may have been abandoned but they left a pretty reminder of the fact of someone living there at some point! Nice pictures again Rose -- I love the covered bridge on your previous entry!

Love coneflowers...they grow in all the ditches around here. i think their shape is so cool...would make a nice quilt applique.
