Purple Cone Flowers

These coneflowers are in a bed in our front yard, they are not native to our area.  The past days have been some of the hottest and muggiest this summer,  I try to get up and out early to paint and with the tall grasses get covered with dew.  I have been reading Peter Matthiessen's book End of the Earth,  Voyages to Antarctica.  A funny feeling reading about frigid temperatures and Ice bergs and blue and white, while here it is green green green and hot and humid.
