A year ago, I planted from a seed packet a few Blackeyed Susans. Eventually, I had this small patch of them in my garden to admire for the season. The season ended and I did my usual garden clean-up, removing dead and decayed plants, but careful to toss any dried seed heads back onto the soil.
As a gardener, you never know from year to year what will sprout. Some years there is a lot of one particular plant and others very little of it. I like the constant surprise, the never knowing. Well, this year I am inundated with Blackeyed Susans. From that one tiny circle of blossoms, I have an entire flower garden full of their happy, yellow faces. They have sprouted all across the bed, in multiple locations.
They are the cheeriest of flowers. I simply cannot photograph them enough, so here is my view of their beauty for you to behold.
