Echinacea (Waterford, Wisconsin USA)
Flowers never worry. They are never lonely. They start as the smallest seeds and as they take root in the depth of the cool earth, their arms reach upward toward the sun, embracing its warmth and exploding in a frenzy of joyous color. And even when the flowers fade, their petals curling and falling one by one, the earth celebrates their return, rewarding the flower with rest until the next warm spring day.
