Black-Eyed Susans

Black-Eyed Susans

Many things grow in the garden that were never sown there.  ~ Thomas Fuller, Gnomologia, 1732

I think Thomas Fuller made a very true observation.

Since it is raining, with some much needed rain, thought I would post some sweet Susans from my backyard garden. A touch of sunshine in these ladies, no matter how inclement the weather.

    Beautiful, and all the more so because of the rain, I think.

    Lovely shot, Bo. Isn’t it wonderful the way these beauties brighten up a rainy day?

    Love how they fill the frame. There is something so ‘summer’ about them.

    A sunny, fresh burst of colour and an awesome photograph. Thanks for your recent encouragement re.”Lean on Me” and I hope all is well with you Bo.

    This is so pretty. My black eyed Susans didn’t look that good this year.
