A rather uncommon view of a common flower. The Purple Coneflower is a popular blossom in many gardens throughout Eastern and Central North America. It’s alias, Echinacea, is making a name for itself in the world of herbal medicine as a booster for the immune system and is reported to have several medicinal qualities. Photographed in my summer garden, August 9, 2008. Enjoy! Len

    Wow Great Macro

  • Well thank you! It may surprise you to know that before I got into photography, I thought these flowers were very unattractive. I’ve since changed my thinking on that score. (LOL). Len
