I read a post from Mike Moats a while back called “Dead Plants Make Cool Art” and since then, have been looking for some similar subject matter. When I stopped by Bulloch Hall earlier this week, I found what I had been looking for. This patch of coneflowers had the flower dead heads which have an interesting spiky ball and a couple of fading flowers still visible.
It may not be super colorful but I think this kind of marks the passing of time and change of seasons. This is very appropriate for the season we are having here in the Atlanta area. Things are drying up and headed toward winter but there’s still a bit of Summer hanging on.
