You got to love the Black-eyed Susan, Maryland's state flower.
Unlike other favorite flowers of mine this one lasts, and lasts, and lasts and keeps color in my gardens through out the month of August and beyond. Thank goodness because not much else is flowering.
Over the years I have moved it to new places and it has moved itself.
Here is a tour of all the Black-eyed Susan spots of color in my gardens.
One small patch in the Glen Garden
And when the blossoms fade and the seeds are ripe another spot of yellow stops by to feast.
Thank you Black-eyed Susans and thank you goldfinch!
