soup's on!

Behold a robust example of the latest coneflower hybrids I found living the lush life in a neighbor's yard. A far cry from the native Prairie Echinacea! This one I think must be the 'Tomato Soup' variety. Therefore, I know what I'm having for lunch--make that with a grilled cheese sandwich on the side, please. See more delicious reds at Mary's Tuesday Meme, Ruby Tuesday.

Your neighbor's garden is stunning, the rubies overpowering (nicely) the Summer green. Campbell's soup is a ruby, the cans moreso. Why a utilitarian can is the basis of art I cannot say. But it always works quite nicely!

awesome cone flowers. They are just beautiful, I have the Purple cone flowers myself. I really like the reds that go with this one

Hi Noni. Had to laugh when I saw the Campbell's Soup cans. I was just talking about Warhol and El Greco tonight with a friend. Yeah, I know. The two of them in the same sentence???? But they are the extremes of the reality of artistic expression. I prefer El Grego but understand the need for a Warhol too.

Yes, those coneflowers are such a different color than the Prairie variety! Stunning color, though....Happy Ruby Tuesday!
