Black-eyed Susans

July 31 (14) Black Eyed Susan

Awhile back, I found this patch of Black-eyed Susans blossoming happily in the road ditch.  (Thank goodness for the roadside ditches…..they provide a home for many different wildflowers!)  Several years ago, I planted Black-eyed Susans in a couple spots around our farmyard and they have spread all over the place.  They start blooming in late July and provide color until the first frost.

I love Black-eyed Susans! They grow wild along the roadside in certain areas around here. Haven't seen that many this year though.

Today I'm cleaning out the memorial planter in front of our office and I was grumbling about it not having any flowers blooming in it this time of year. Well now I know what I will be planting in it to assure we have flowers come this time next year! =)
