Today's Flower

This week it's echinacea, which can be used for medicinal purposes, see this article. The first one is called Tomato Soup, and it is the colour of tomato soup. Again sorry about the quality, not 100% in focus.


This one is called Coconut Lime, the petals are so small on this flower, aren't they?

Hi Gill, lovely shots of your echinacea. The last one with the tiny petals, I don't think I have ever seen that one before. Thank you for sharing them with us, and have a great week.

I do like the variety name of 'Tomato Soup' so apt for the colour of the flower.

Tomato Soup does indeed remind of the soup with milk which is one of my favorites.
The Coconut Lime is strangely pretty. :)

This is only the second orange echinacea I've seen, both photos from blogging friends. I think I need to investigate the possibility of adding that to my garden.
