Bees and butterflies and many tiny creatures love these plants and can be seen going round and round the cone. I noticed this one has several small tubular flowers at the base, though I do not know the purpose of these.
I have spent most of my career as a French professor and a research librarian, and have been reinventing myself as a writer. I’m currently working on a book. My interest in photography began with the discovery of my friend Bonnie’s beautiful photo gallery on Red Bubble. I never cease to be amazed at the little discoveries one makes of God’s awesome creation.
