Early Spring Photowalk in Kentlands: Coneflower

Early Spring Photowalk in Kentlands: Coneflower


We are anxious for warmer spring and summer weather in Kentlands. Coneflowers are popular in the gardens of many Kentlands home owners.  I was taking photographs of the historic Caretaker's Home in Kentlands and decided to get a shot or two of the early spring garden. 

This is what a coneflower looks like when the bloom is gone. More coneflowers will be blooming this summer.

Hi Roy... that's a very "cool" looking picture of a coneflower, if you ask me. I'm always in awe of your photographic skills. (Maybe because I don't have any!)

Roy, nice picture of the coneflower and like the background of the photo.  It had to be fun taking photos of the Caretaker's Home and garden... Like living in history.

Roy: When in bloom they really stand out in a garden. You definitely have an eye for flowers!
