Black-Eyed Susans


Black-Eyed Susans © 2008

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.

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

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

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