A few weeks ago the coneflowers began to bloom in our trailer garden.
Fresh and lovely, they begged to be photographed.
Though stunning in any light, I was very pleased when the clouds briefly parted and the evening sun shone down on their faces.
Two weeks later the same flowers are holding their own, even among the young upstarts. Their petals may not be as fresh, but their centers are raised higher...and their beauty endures.
