Confused Flower

Don't really feel up to writing very much today, so I will just post this photo of a confused coneflower. It has flower stalks growing out of the center of the flower and petals that are green on the underside, with a flush of pink on the top.

  2. That IS strange.
    Never seen anything like that before.

  3. Coneflowers are normally such well organised symmetrical chaps - this one is a shambles!

  4. There are quite a few strange individuals amongst the coneflowers this year, but that one (and the one next to it) is (are) the only ones with flowers growing out of flowers.

  6. How odd, lovely photo though! I have some Coneflowers in a pot and I thought I had lost them during the Winter but suddenly (and very late in the season) they appeared again!

    I have just caught up with your last couple of posts, that is a very strange looking bug on the last one!

    The photo of your cat with the flower is absolutely stunning! It has to be one of the nicest I have ever seen (and that comes from someone who is not a huge lover of cats!) well done!

    I noticed you said you didn't feel like writing too much, I do hope you are not unwell?
