  64. Hello from Cody, Wyoming. It is fun to meet other bloggers through this OWOH event. Your coneflowers remind me of home. When I was a kid growing up in rural South Dakota coneflowers grew wild on the hills above our house. We children used to pick them and say,"smell my flower" then poke them at each others noses...I remember that they were very prickly! Thanks for the trip down memory lane..and thank you for entering my name in the drawing.
