Black-eyed Susans

I have been studying some of the neighborhoods around me to see what is blooming right now. Occasionally I have been finding some that still have lots of color. I think that I need to plant some Black-eyed Susans. They seem to be able to take the extreme heat and dryness that we are having and still flourish.



I seem to remember that I had them a one point, but they disappeared.
I think I accidently mistook them for a weed and disposed of them during my spring weeding.

Are you stalking your neighborhood for photos? LOL. They are neat flowers.

Echinacea and bee balm too... just be prepared to be dive bombed by the hummingbirds with the bee balm...

Yup, I have been stalking. I have been trying to put sime time in my garden every morning before I go to work and want to add some perennials that bloom right now. I had one home owner looked concerned when she saw me taking pictures. :o)

Oh, I've been stalking garden blogs too. I am trying to find a few active ones that are in my growing zone.

Gee I don't understand WHY someone would be concerned about a random person driving by taking pictures...

Personally, I'd call the cops on your ass. ROFL

I've always loved black-eyed susans but I think I have my hands full enough trying to figure out what to do with the SWAMP that apparently exists in my "planting bed".

Hmm Stubbydog, can we say PARANOID?
