Blackberry, Rosaceae Rubus

...or it could be marionberries. Or ollieberries. We were in Oregon, and these were growing in the side of the road. I'm pretty sure that intentional hybridization was not controlled, but they were tasty!

(P.S. Everytime I say "marionberry," I feel the urge to make inappropriate jokes about DC's former mayor.)

Eastern purple coneflower, Echinacea purpurea

I needed my future mother-in-law to help me with this one. I've never seen echinacea not in tea form.
