Roadside Coneflowers

July 31 (4)

This photo was taken a few weeks ago.  (Don’t tell anyone, but I’m running short of up-to-date flower photos.)  These yellow coneflowers are no more.  Dusty doldrums have overtaken the roadsides in our area.  All vegetation in the roadsides and fields begins to dry up at this point in late summer, filling the outdoors with a gentle rustling sound that follows you wherever you go.

OH, I will miss them. My favorites are the purples.
