Coneflowers and Cauliflower

My coneflowers are starting to bloom.  A couple of times Japanese beetles have eaten the pedals before they bloomed.  It was a pitiful sight. 
 I usually focus on the mature flower.
 They are pretty stunning.
 But the early stages are just as interesting.
 Watching how they grow,
 and change
 then get some color,
 and then become a flower.
 Sometimes the journey is as interesting as the destination. 
 On to cauliflower.  My broccoli cage worked wonderfully.  No bugs and enough sun filtration to grow some beautiful heads of cauliflower.
I found a recipe for roasted cauliflower and it was delicious.  I will probably freeze these two for enjoyment later.
