Purple flowers to smile for…

These purple echinacea coneflowers are a favorite prairie wildflower here in Illinois. They adorn many landscape gardens and wildflower areas.

While walking in my favorite park at the Morton Arboretum, I spot these gorgeous flowers that make me smile inside and out! I love their huge triangular dome center shapes and their delicate decorative petals that seem to dance with the winds.

Watch long enough and you will see the bees gravitate to their cone and the petals do a dance.

Taking a bow
Waiting to begin the show
The dancing drama
The finale
The standing ovation

Coneflowers have a wonderful personality, just stop and watch!
