This was a little family out for a walk. Lovely day. Me stopping by the bead store across the street. Hounds out on the town. Sorry about your head, dude. Was taking the photo at a stoplight. And you are quite tall.
Getting up close and personal with a lunching bee. Me, allergic to bee stings (though I have a sneaking suspicion that I have outgrown that!). Bee, reaping the sweet treats of a purple cone flower.
Said purple coneflower and its buds. Maybe a little pun intended.
Rudbeckia. One of my all time favs. I plucked a de-petaled stem for the seeds. They are currently riding around in my car, drying out, for some hopeful future planting joy.
