One day on the way to brunch I saw this pretty pink flower and couldn’t resist taking a picture of it. It stood out to me among the other flowers in the garden. Unfortunately the photo of it was a little rushed and blurry, so I didn’t intend to post it. Somehow in a google search for another flower, I figured out that it is the Echinacea plant. If you’re familiar with herbs, you may know a little something about this plant. Echinacea has an immune system boosting effect and is often used to fight the common cold or flu. I’ve used Echinacea in combination with goldenseal in the past to fight off a cold. One of the great things about using natural herbs is that they can be beneficial and pretty at the same time!
