I Heart Macro - Cone Flower

Welcome to my post for I Heart Macro.
I have every intention on creating a follow up Cone Flower post that has more in depth information about the current conditions in my garden where I'm having issues with my cone flowers.

I believe I have Aster Yellows Phytoplasma on my Cone Flowers.
It affects over 300 species of plants - and I'm admittedly a bit concerned that this is just the beginning.
I've got a bunch of samples into the lab at the University of Delaware to see if they can confirm what it is that my plants have and what they recommend that I do about it.

I love my garden not just for the beauty and inspiraiton that it provides to me personally,
but also because it supports so much wildlife all year round.
And because it gives me a place to go with my little ones to let them experience nature first hand…

Stop by and check out some other macro shots over on Studio Waterstone's Blog:
