I love the cone flowers…
…even when they’re dry and fading fast. The orange and pink don’t seem to belong together at this point, and the petals are slowly turning black. I hope we have good fall colors this year, but it might be too dry.
Fun day today: Book club/breakfast, then I’m heading to Red Wing, MN, for a girlfriend outing. (Think Red Wing Shoes & Red Wing Pottery.) Whether the trees are turning or not, it’s always fun when four “giggly girls” get together to celebrate a couple of birthdays!
(PS: The other three giggle girls sent the most beautiful floral basket to my mom’s funeral in June. I took a photo of the yellow flowers back in June, and I used part of that picture in my blog header today. And the basket of flowers is still blooming by my front door!)
