This is one of my favorite flowers to photograph.  It was not a popular plant when I was a kid growing up.  The back to nature movement brought out natural prairie plants into the market and now we have different colors of them. The front garden has the two colors and the above photo is now also planted in the back yard.  I need to invest in a red one this fall.

The white one is stunning in its form and color.  I have never had a white coneflower before and am glad to watch it bloom.

Deep in Thought......

It is pretty isolated over in the far corner of the yard. We really don't get to enjoy seeing the angel so he may get a major move. Maybe the bricks can be straighten and lined up better.

The morning has a clear sky with lots of sunshine.  It is going to be a good day with good temperatures and very little wind.  The new petunia planter was set on the  patio table yesterday.  It looks good there so will never make it to a hook downstairs for display. These things are dropping in price as we head for July.

Full Rainbow..........

I have not seen a full rainbow in years. The other end didn't photograph well but you can take my word on it, that it did fill out to the horizon on the other end. The rainbow was fading quickly and I almost didn't get any image.

Splashing Colors........

My marigolds that surround the tomato plants are holding their own in the hot sun and pounding rains. I am not certain that this is a marigold but the nursery places it among the marigold plants.  It will be a 92 F. degree day today so they will be challenged again. My tomato plants have buds and some of these days I can post tomato plant blooms.

Lilies of the Day.......

A visit to the old home place gave me a chance to pick a few of the lilies that are in bloom.  The day lilies are slow starting up there but I should be able to pick them as they bloom.
