Earlier in the spring,I picked up a flat of these flowers,not having a clue what they were, other than I liked the picture of what they would become when they flowered.
Ashley, my middle daughter, who is a professional gardener told me when the plants finally bloomed, that this beautiful flower is part of the Rudbeckia family and this particular member is called Indian Summer. Who knew? Isn't fun when our kids can teach us new things?
It's not hard to tell that the golden flowers are amongst my favorites. Black-eyed Susans, marigolds of every kind and of course the biggest and best of all.....
This lovely is the first of the grrls to show her sunny face. I am looking forward to the late summer show of sunflowers this year!
