A few weeks ago I was able to get my hands on four Flamenco Orange coneflowers. I missed them first blooming because I was out of town but was pleasantly surprised when I returned to find them blooming. Nice orange color looking quite a bit like CS oranges.
Last weekend, I went to the Lowes that is 40 miles away from where I live. I called Lowes earlier in the week and the clerk said they had just received some new coneflowers. When I got to Lowes, they had received Hot Corals and the Flamenco Oranges. I purchased one of each and they also had Orange Milkweed. So, I purchased one of those.
All is going fine so far.
As I was leaving the town, I pulled into a service station to get some gas, for gas was about 15 cents a gallon cheaper than in the town I live. After finishing getting gas, as I put the nozzle back on the pump, I noticed a car barreling right towards me. The service station is on a busy highway. The driver came off the highway due to being unconscious as a result of some illegal activities he participated in.
Tomorrow, I should find out if my vehicle is going to be totaled by the insurance company or repaired. I was very fortunate in that I only ended up with nice bruises. It could have been much worse.
(The Flamenco Orange and Hot Coral coneflowers look very similar. Maybe the tag on one of them is wrong, or maybe I need to look at them closer.) For singles, it is getting really hard to beat Cheyenne Spirits.
