The Google (I love that phrase) tells me that yes, indeed yellow coneflowers exist – botanical name, Echinacea Paradoxa. A paradox because they are usually purple/pink. Okay then, nothing better than a paradox to set your imagination free. Learned that the definition of paradox includes “vicious circularity,” Google it if inclined. I point this out because the photographer and I both live in towns called Vienna – hers is in Europe and mine is in Virginia. What are the chances of that happening? Not to mention I visited her beautiful city many years ago . Circular, for sure. I just love the coincidence and learning that comes from doing something outside your “normal.”
One of my absolute favorite summer flowers so had to go for it - thrilled to find out they also come in yellow!
