Garden hitch hiker

I'm pretty sure that I didn't plant this flower in my garden but I like it any way. It's a cone flower from the composite family. I was doing a casual inventory of my garden the other day and realised that nearly all of the plants flowering right now are composites.

There are also some daisies in these pictures (also composites). I've got two or three kinds of them.

That's Ethan in the distance sitting on one of their wagon thingies waiting for the school bus.

I really like these flowers so I'll be letting some of the blooms go to seed for planting.
