The dazzling white and yellow  flowers of early spring are now being joined by the cooler colors –purples and blues — of coneflowers and smooth petunias. A terrific site for Arkansas wildflowers can be found here.

CONEFLOWER — The wild coneflower blooms are stringier than many of their garden-bred relatives, but still beautiful in their native setting. A scattering of petunias adds more blue to the background.
VEINED — Close look at one of the petunias blooming in the grass.

  1. Love the coneflower. Looks like something that should be floating in the ocean. Great shots.
