I love echinacea!. I keep the flowers in a jar long after their petals are faded and withered- they still hold their appeal for me. Maybe because I’m a little faded and wilted myself! There is a beauty in aging. . . right?
This week I’m meeting with my little AAUW photo group- and the topic is emotions in photos. We didn’t have a presentation on this, so I felt like I was flying blind with this theme. I chose a photograph of one of my grandsons looking APPREHENSIVE as he got on the school bus to kindergarten, another of a group of children looking GLEEful as they frolicked on the beach- and then three flower photos (one HAPPY cosmos and two echinacea). I had bought the echinacea at last weekend’s farmer’s market and decided yesterday to photograph them in their current state of WILT.
