~ Coneflowers – In A Vase On Monday ~

 Echinacea and Rudbeckia create a riot of color along the border of my front yard. Though somewhat raggedy up close, they still bring a smile to my face!

Rudbeckia fulgida ‘Goldstrum,’ Echinacea pupurea ‘White Swan,’ Echinacea pupurea ‘Magnus’

The vase is a pottery pitcher displayed with four mugs, which my father sent home when he was stationed in Europe during WWII. Stamped ‘Made in Belgium,’ it is a precious heirloom.

  1. The flowers will fade, another arrangement will come, but the memories will never fade and always be present, a very fitting heirloom.

  2. The pitcher is perfect for your bouquet of coneflowers, and such texture ! The epitome of summer beauty ☺
