purple coneflowers with scented geranium leaf

My goodness these flowers have been stalwart! They've kept blooming through at least two hard frosts and several "soft" ones. I picked them today for a talk I'm giving on
Saturday and because I just thought they deserved to be celebrated!

P.S. The flowers obviously aren't purple. Nor are they as red as they look in the photo. They're a sort of russet color, a variety of Echinacea purpurea that I don't know the name of.
